Welcome to my fundraising page!
Hi Friends & Family,
It's been a while since I last rode the Tour de Cure to raise money for diabetes research and education. As many of you know, I've had to contend with other matters, but Thank G-d, I'm able to join TEAM RED this year and do a ten mile ride on my bike (which sits on a dynamometer in my garage).
There has been a lot of progress made in diabetes research since I came down with Type 1 47 years ago. I have been a professional guinea pig, participating in clinical trials of the now familiar devices such as insulin pumps, Freestyle and Therasense continuous blood glucose monitors, and numerous blood glucose fingerstick meters. I'm really excited about the latest research on something called tolerogen therapy which prevents immune system attack on things like the body's insulin-producing beta cells (that causes Type 1 diabetes), and nerve signal receptors at the junction of nerves and muscles (that causes myasthenia gravis - my other autoimmune disease).
All this work takes money, and the purpose of the Tour de Cure is to raise funds for research and education. So if you could spare a few dollars to help me and countless others by donating to my ride, I would be very grateful. Thanks so much!
