Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
PAIGE'S PILOTS! Virtual Ride is on July 25, 2020
I have choosen to ride for many reasons, but the two that are most important to me is to simply show support for Paige and her family. Furthermore, I have diabetes lurking in my family tree, and I want to do something about it! I see this event as my opportunity to help change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affect by diabetes. Paige's life was drastically altered and even at the age of 16 she has prevailed. She can manage and monitor her blood sugar levels and insulin intake unassisted. Paige can not only do this because she is very mature for her age; but because of technology that was created by donations given years prior. But, it would be even better if she could eat an apple and play a soccer game without having to think about what an apple or exercise will do to her blood sugar. Hopefully, future research will allow that possibility or if anything prevent Type I from starting. As some may or may not know, Type I can happen to anyone! Health and lifestyle are not factors!
Chances are, you also know someone who has been affected by diabetes and you already know how important it is to stop this disease. By making a donation on my behalf, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs and fund critical research for a cure.
With your help, we will fight for a future where a parent does not have to hear that their child has diabetes. A future where an adult does not have to face the uncertain times ahead after receiving a diabetes diagnosis. A future where you and I will know that we had a part in making this possible.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
