Welcome to my Personal Page
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.
When I started working with the American Diabetes Association here in the Bay Area I wanted to make an impact in helping find a cure for diabetes. I am a team co-captain for The Wheelys for AIDS/LifeCycle and have been riding since 2015 and that is where my passion for non-profit work started and has become a big part of my life.
Since working here at the ADA I have met so many amazing folks that live everyday of their lives with diabetes and are strong and have the will to fight to stay healthy. Managing diabetes is a part of their everyday life. We are all connected to diabetes in some way and may live with it ourselves or have a loved one that lives with diabetes.
Every 23 seconds, someone in the United States is diagnosed with diabetes. 29.1 million is the estimated number of children and adults in the United States who have
Our mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. We do this through your generous donations which fuel research, advocacy and education.
Since the American Diabetes Association launched its Research Programs in 1952, it has funded nearly 4,500 research projects, investing more than $735 million in diabetes research. In 2015 alone, the Association funded 354 new and continuing research grants and made nearly $31 million in diabetes research funding available.
The Association fights on behalf of the diabetes community to increase federal funding for diabetes research and programs, improve comprehensive health care and insurance coverage, and end discrimination against people with diabetes.
The Association provides public and health care professionals with the most comprehensive and up-to-date information about diabetes care and management.
Nearly 6,000 children attend one of the 50 American Diabetes Association camps.
As always thank you so much for your continued support. I am so thankful to have such a loving support system in my life.
