I did it! I biked 85 miles in the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes in Tucson, Arizona -- in honor of my wonderful husband, Chris!
Thanks to all of you for your support.
As you know, Chris is my greatest source of inspiration. After living 53 years with type 1 diabetes, he remains positive about life. He considers each day a gift and inspires so many people including his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, friends young and old, and even his students at UCSD. I am sure you agree that he is truly a remarkable individual!
Please note that your investment in research helps to fuel exciting advancements in patient care. Miraculously -- and any day now, Chris will receive an islet transplantation at UCSF. It may be possible that Chris becomes insulin independent in the very near future. (We will keep you posted!)
Again, thank you. Chris and I are grateful for your friendship and support.
