Welcome to my Personal Page - Riding for Abi, and dad...riding for a cure
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 joined the Tour de Cure because today alone over 4,100 people will be diagnosed and because more than 30 million adults and children in the United States are living with this terrible disease. Furthermore, I have a niece that was diagnosed with diabetes about 4 years ago, at a very early and difficult age.
Seeing what my niece has to go through at such young age; changing the way she eats, learning to calculate all carbohydrates, sugars, etc. in everything she eats, making sure it will not affect her is very upsetting and difficult to me to process. My niece has diabetes type 1, she is insulin dependent. She wears a monitor all day long. A monitor that her parents, brother and my mom have access to on their phones. This monitor alerts them when Abi's levels are out of range.
Mom lived with me for a short time when this was all new to us. During that time, and any other time we are with mom, I hear the monitor beep...several times a day. IT IS SCARY and heartbreaking. The worse is when she goes to sleep. Abi's blood sugar goes really low and if she, or any of them happen to not hear or wake up to the beep of the monitor, things could end up really bad.
My dad was also recently diagnosed with diabetes. Abi's and dad's diabetes affect me directly, but I realize this disease is far more serious than I knew before and affects many people.
