Greetings Family and Friends, I'm very excited to share with you that once again I'm participating in the JDRF 2013 Tucson Ride To Cure Diabetes!
I want to share this quick video with you created by Ian Joyce, one of our team captains and long-time friend. Ian captures the reason why I continue to ride even after breaking my collarbone in three places on my mom's birthday, in June of 2010! I hope you have a few minutes to watch this video as I struggle to put into words how important this ride is to me and all those living with Type 1 diabetes (T1D)
The team has been having team practice rides since the Spring gearing up for the ride! It starts off with George doing his best to get me out the door on time, and hours before the ride Joe and Ian texting me on when to leave the house! And let me just say Coach Ian and Coach Joe Maisano (our other team coach) are fantastic teaching us and helping some of us on hills get ready for this amazing event!
I'm excited to share with you that I'm using one of the newer technologies to help better manage my diabetes. It's called a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM). This device is amazing. There's a transmitter that is attached to my body that reads my blood glucose level to a receiver. For the first time in 45 years of living with diabetes, I can actually "see" what and in what direction my blood sugar is doing! It helps me to see patterns and aggressively better manage my diabetes! An alarm sounds if my blood sugar goes too low, and believe me it works as George and I have woke up on the ceiling a few times!
I am asking for your help to sponsor me at this year's JDRF Tucson Ride to Cure Diabetes. Your generous donation continues to fund critical research. I thank you so very much for your donation helping to cure T1D so that one day T1D will be Type 1 None!
Jeannine and George
