Welcome to my Personal Page
Welcome to my fundraising site! I am cycling in my eighth Tour de Cure® event in honor of my husband who has been living with diabetes for more than 20 years and my Dad who lived with the disease until 11/12/17. As I'm riding in this year's event, I'll be especially mindful of the challenges my Dad faced as he lived with diabetes while facing two battles with lung cancer. Sadly, he lost his battle with lung cancer and I was enraged that he had to deal with the demands of diabetes when he needed to focus on beating cancer. I resented seeing him have to worry about insulin shots and managing his diabetes medications when he was dealing with the effects of cancer treatments. Even though he faced all of these challenges with a firm resilience and a positive attitude, I hated to see the extra burdens he beared because of diabetes.
So please help me reach my goal for my husband and for my deeply missed Dad.
