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 for 31 years. It has certainly impacted me in various ways, but I've never let it stop me from living my life. My parents spent a large part of my childhood waking up several time a night to check my bloodsugar, and essentially trying to keep the scale even 24/7. As a parent myself, my motivation for riding is no longer for my own wellbeing, but more for my son, who is somewhat more at risk to develop diabetes. I can't imagine him having to live with some of the difficulties and concerns that I have had to live with for 31 years. Please help me support the millions of kids who have to growup battling this life changing disease.
How can you support me? There are two ways:
1) The preferred way is to join my team! Warren Droms rode with me last year and together we raised almost $3000. We're looking to blow that away in 2017. Don't ride a bike? No worries! This year the tour has added a walking route!
2) Make a donation! I do a fair amount of fundraising, especially given my role at Dana Farber, but this is the one I put heat of everyone to donate too given how close I am to the disease itself. No number is too small!
To help support my efforts, to make an impact, and to shape the future of diabetes, please click on the Donate button.
I am forever grateful for your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
