Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!

JDRF TN Hill top

    Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!

    Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of other riders across the country to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).  If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening.  And they know it never goes away.

    As you may or may not know, my family has been impacted daily with Type 1 and we see and live the effects it has on a person and families.  My wife, Gina, was a juvenile onset diabetic at age 14 and has had to constantly monitor her blood sugar level several times a day, plus having to inject herself with insulin several times a day.  Now if you ever met Gina, you would not know that she is a Type 1 diabetic because her boundless energy and personality is what you would notice.  What you may not see is the blood sugar level crashes and spikes that occur due to being a Type 1 diabetic. 

    My hope and dream is that one day we can find a cure for this and that is why I am asking for your support.  Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts.  By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.

    Did you know that:

    • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
    • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
    • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
    • Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?

    As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D.  JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.  Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?

    I sincerly thank you for your support!
