Welcome to my Personal Page
SO MANY LIVES ARE TOUCHED BY DIABETES. CHANCES ARE YOUR LIFE IS TOO.
I have been a Type 1 diabetic now for over 28 years . I have given myself more than 50,000 shots and checked my sugar more than 65,000 times. No one could possibly understand the daily struggle that is being a Type 1 Diabetic. Diabetes is a chronic disease causing stroke and ther number 1 cause of heart failure . it affects your eyes, your limbs, an d your organs and if not controlled can result in horrible health consequences including death I currently have 4 stents due to diabetes, and like all Diabetics I have good days and bad days. It is important for people to understand that while while 90% of all diabetics in the US are Type 2 Diabetics , there is a huge difference between Type 1 and Type 2.
Type 2 Diabtes can normally be contolled with a pill , exercise, and proper diet but needs no insulin on a daily basis to contol their glucose and basically not die. I have been blessed to raise over $15,000.00 through the Tour De Cure ifor ther ADA . While I am a type 1 diabetic ( the only one in the 100 mile ride ilast March that I know of ) with that comes a wealth of issues when riding a century or just living my daily life. I am riding in the 101 mile Tour De Cure in Lake Nona to continue to raise awareness to the unfortunate hyper growth of this disease.
I hope to play a small role in changing the face of Diabetes and helping to raise funds towards a cure, while trying to make others understand how serious and gruesome this disease can be. I have 4 stents in my left descending artery, I have Hashimotos disease ( thyroid) , and I am a type 1 Diabetic BUT I can ride 100 miles, I can enjoy an amazing family, I can be a successful businessman.
Diabetes kills 700 people a day - over 5000 people will find out this week they have the disease- WE CAN FIND A CURE - WE ARE CLOSE - PLEASE HELP ME DO MY PART
DONATE- RIDE WITH ME - GET INVOLVED - CHANCES ARE YOU KNOW SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU THAT IS DIABETIC -
