Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
I am riding because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is so much more than a cycling event to me. It is my opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes.
I am committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because I personally know some of them, and I want to do something about it. Won?t you help me start a chain reaction?
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 or by joining my team, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes 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!
I was diagnosed with "steroid induced hypoglycemia" in September 2012 after taking the prescription drug, Prednisone, to combat a liver disease that I have. My daily routine consists of checking my blood sugar level at least twice per day and taking the drug Metformin twice per day. With Prednisone, it is very difficult to regulate blood sugar levels. I've been riding my bicycle 15 - 20 miles per day as often as weather (and work schedule) permits. Diet is also an important ingredient in keeping my diabetes in check. Please be as generous as you can be in supporting this effort. My goal is to raise $175 and to ride 65 miles. Thank you!
