Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
I am riding because I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes on May15, 2012. I have spent much of my life advocating for other causes and this was the first time I actually get to advocate for some thing that affects me personally. Like many people when they are first diagnosed, I went through a "woe is me"phase. Then I went to the diabetes education at St. Anthony's Hospital and saw that out of all the people in the room, I was one of the more fortunate. Exercise was not an issue for me because of my age and health and I could easily afford my medication. I have been an avid cyclist since 1988 and I have now stepped up my riding to 50-100 miles a week. My 90 day A1C was 5.7% and my doctor was thrilled.
I am riding because I can. Many people who have diabetes can't exercise or just lose that 5 pounds. I feel so fortunate that I can exercise and I will be riding for all of those who can't. Please support my ride and donate so that we can end this disease.
