Welcome to my TdC 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. Why? Well, to begin with, I have type 2 diabetes, and so do my two brothers. But most of all, because my daughter, Kristin, has had type 1 diabetes for over 40 years. Thanks in part to personal donations, she has been able to take advantage of treatment inprovements and life-saving research discoveries, enabling her to lead a 'near-normal' life. I am eternally grateful to all donors for this.
Kristin was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 5. She started giving herself her insulin injections at that age because her dad (me) was too nervous and clumsey to do it well. In her 43 years with diabetes, she has never let it be the reason she could not do something. From college, to living overseas, to girl scout camps in foreign countries, to marriage, to a career, she showed great fortitude and perserverience in living with diabetes.
So please help me reach my goal of $300.
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
Thank you for your support!
