DIABETES SUCKS! #T1D
I am riding in the Tour de Cure 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 have been living with Type 1 Diabetes for over 20 years and despite the advances made on behalf of this disease, they have been minimal. There is no cure and no way to prevent Type 1 Diabetes. Therefore, I am committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not only because a mere 5% of the 30 Million people with diabetes have TYPE ONE, but because I personally know some of them, I am one of them, and I want to do something about it.
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!
