2018 Tour de Cure: Tennessee

Tri Sigma

Our team is making a difference. You can too!

Our team, Tri Sigma, 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. We want A CURE!

I've had diabetes for 32 years, and it doesn't get any easier with time. It's something I'm thinking about literally every minute of every day. Keeping myself alive is literally in my hands and it's mentally as well as physically draining. Unlike most other diseases, I make my own treatment decisions on the spot and they could be fatal me if I don't think well through them. I've had seizures, been in a coma and experienced a lot of memory loss from this terrible disease while growing up. Every little thing matters: stress, illness, environment, weather, everything! It's a constant tightrope walk. 

The ADA has helped fund great developments since I was diagnosed, such as insulin pumps (tubeless is my fav!) and continuous glucose monitors that wake me up when I'm dangerously low or high. I wouldn't be alive today had it not been for the ADA's fundraising and education efforts. I definitely wouldn't be able to live alone or be active in running and sports. While the progress is great, I still have this nightmare of a disease and it needs to go away for good.
