Welcome to My Personal Page -- And My Personal Crusade to Bike 85 Miles for Chris!

    As you know, Chris is my greatest source of inspiration.  Even though he has been through so much in his 55 years of type 1 diabetes, he remains positive about life.  He 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!

    This month, we celebrate 30 years together -- 29 years married.  At 15 years together, I almost lost Chris.  This summer, I watched Chris rapidly decline until, finally, he was diagnosed with two subdural hematomas and had emergency brain surgery.  Thanks to physical therapy, occupational therapy, and Chris' will to live, he is on the road to recovery.  Every day with Chris is a gift.

    I hope you will consider supporting JDRF's quest to cure diabetes by making a donation to my JDRF Ride.  I plan to ride 85 miles and raise $3,000.  (That is just over $35 a mile!)

    Again, thank you.  Chris and I are grateful for your friendship and support.
