Since the StepOut walk in 2008, I have been diagnosed as a Type 2
Diabetic. I don't take insulin, but I am watching what I eat, attempting
to lose more weight, and take my Metformin medication.
Although I have lost almost 30 pounds through nutrition and exercise,
I still need to lose more.
I have joined my 3 best male friends who have all been diagnosed as
diabetic, as well as one of their wives. Another wife has been recently
diagosed as pre-diabetic!
Just over 5 years ago, I lost a friend and church choir member to
complications of diabetes, and this year an acquaintance who was only
37 years old is gone, and the brother of a close friend has passed.
Obviously, it's hitting home pretty personally to me!

Walking power works!
Each dollar I raise will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes
and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
No matter how small or large, your gift for 2013 will help improve
the lives of the more than 20 million Americans who suffer from
diabetes and another 54 million people with Pre-diabetes, in the
hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease.
Together, we can all make a difference!
Thank you for making a generous contribution to this cause that is
important to me!
