Ride # 12, I'm coming for you.
Katie, Ellie, Zuzu...and a whole bunch of others who I love and admire, are my reasons.
Did you know, type 1 diabetes:
- Is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin – the hormone that controls blood sugar levels
- Strikes children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle
- Requires constant carb counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin
- Is a constant balancing act that results in stress and sleepless nights
Cliff and I are looking forward to our opportunity to put a dent in this disease, and do our part to raise research dollars and awareness. And... remind Katie, Ellie, and Zuzu how much we love them.
