Deanna Bascom, T1D & Call to Congress Advocate 2018 & 2019
Welcome to my fundraising page!
I am asking you to support me in the Tour de Cure® because finding a cure for diabetes means so much to me.
I was diagnosed T1D in June 2017 at the age of 47. In addition to finding a cure, I want to advocate for affordable insulin and access to affordable and adequate healthcare coverage.
I attended the 2018 Call to Congress as a delegate from Oregon meeting with Senators Merkley & Wyden along with Representative Kurt Schrader (district 5). I will attend in 2019 and continue advocacy work throughout 2019.
In addition, I will be cooking and hosting "A Worthy Dinner", dinner with beer pairings, sponsored by Worthy Brewing from Bend, Oregon. This event will take place on Monday, June 10 at Blockhouse in Portland. Stay tuned to the Tour de Cure Facebook page and my Instagram account, @deanna_bascom to find out about purchasing tickets to this event.
You can Help Me Reach My Goal!
When you donate:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes.
- You fund life-saving research.
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes
By participating in the Tour de Cure, I hope to inspire others to join me and raise money.
Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.
