It's that time! I started doing this ride in the early 90s. Then because of diabetes-related health issues, I was sidelined until after receiving my kidney transplant in 2013. Since then I’ve ridden each year. In 2014 I rode while postponing colon cancer surgery so I could ride. In 2015 I rode while recovering from a broken elbow. 2016 was riding with more vision loss and 2017 and 2018 were both rides done while getting over a bad infection that nearly took my life.
ALL of these obstacles have been directly attributable to diabetes even though I have not been a diabetic since 1997.
But diabetes is the gift that keeps on giving. That’s why I need you to keep on giving.
And thank you!
