Help Make a Difference in the fight against diabetes!
I don't know life without diabetes, it doesn't define me but it certainly is a HUGE part of me. I've been a diabetic since the age of 14 months old. I've had minimal complications throughout the 53 years I've had this. I've hit a bump in the road here and there but I will NEVER let this get the best of me.
The 2020 Tour de Cure will be my ninth year riding. I had such an AMAZING experience participating in my first TDC back in 2012 that there was never a doubt in my mind that I would do it again! I met amazing people and had the time of my life. Knowing that each of us were riding for the same reason, to help find a cure!
This year my ride is dedicated to my friend Lance Shulman. Every year I think of friends that I lost to diabetes and that is why it is so important to raise money so we can put an end to diabetes. “You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.”
I ride not only for myself but for my dad & all my diabetic friends from Camp NYDA (NY Diabetes Assoc.) and all who have it and the ones I've met through doing the TDC! I've seen the worst up close and I've lost many friends to diabetes and your support can help find a cure. If I had to pick a disease I would pick diabetes because it is controllable and you can live a healthy lifestyle. I've had bad, good and great control over the years, I've had my share of complications along the way but it will never stop me and never gets me down. If I wasn't a Diabetic I wouldn't have had the chance to meet so many AMAZING people and friends that all are bonded by it!
No matter how small or large, your generous gift will help improve the lives of 25 million Americans who suffer from diabetes, in the hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Together, we can all make a difference!
Thank you for making a generous contribution to this cause that is so important to me! Thank you for your help & support.
