2017 St. Louis Tour de Cure

Frank's Tanks


Our team is supporting the American Diabetes Association because we want to make a difference.  We want to lead.  We want to inspire.  We want to empower! 

If you can't join us, support us!

We're riding for Frank, Janelle and Brian's son who was diagnosed with Type 1 in February of 2016. Just 4 when diangosed and now nearly 6 Frank has taken it all in stride. Though he understands this disease is his life, and the countless number of finger pokes and shots he'll receive, he doesn't always like it, and neither should we.  

We are teaming up now to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We are committed to participate together and raise money through this inspirational event not just because nearly 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because we personally know some of them, and want to do something about it.  Frank is very fortunate to have parents with good jobs, and good health insurance.  The number of diabetics across the country with little or no access to healthcare to pay for these costly prescriptions is staggering.  

Prescription cost breakdown without insurance: Frank needs about 300 test strips per month, we test him up to 10 times per day. tWithout insurance the monthly cost of 300 test strips - $180. Mealtime insulin, generally speaking Frank gets shots with every meal and snack up to 6 times per day. Monthly cost for his meal time insulin - $550 monthly, he also uses this same insulin at school daily, and has additional supplies there. Frank also needs a slow acting nighttime insulin, monthly cost - $390. Without insurance the grand total is $1120 per month! This total doesn't include other supplies such as lancets, pen needles, syringes, or alcohol swabs. These costs are for things Frank simply needs in order to live. Many times, we have to fight with the insurance company to refill his prescriptions, or the amount they will cover.

By making a donation or joining our 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.

As a team, united in our vision of a life free of diabetes and all its burdens; we are asking for your support. Please make a donation to one of our team members or join us by registering on our team. When we bring together dedicated team members and kind donors, the power we have as a group far outweighs what any of us could do alone.

We are determined to reach our team goal, one person at a time. So let's get in gear and make a difference together!  Frank is counting on us!

Thank you for your consideration,
