♥ On Sunday, June 3, 2019 our ADA ‘Free Birds’ team will be walking in memory of our mother Carol Anne Rice-Principato (1957-2009), and our grandmother Anne Principato (1936-2012) who both lived with diabetes before their lives were cut short. 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 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. ♥
