Diabetes is not slowing down. Every 3 minutes, a person in Canada is diagnosed with diabetes. I was diagnosed as an insulin dependent diabetic at age 15 with no family history.
Over the last 100 years since the discovery of insulin, we have made great strides in helping people living with diabetes. But insulin is not a cure and diabetes is not slowing down. Diabetes continues to grow in prevalence, cause devastating complications or death, and impact the quality of life for those living with diabetes and the people who care about them.
That's why I'm Lacing Up to help bring us one step closer to a cure. Please help me make a lasting difference by donating to my page.
Every dollar raised helps fund education, support services, advocacy and diabetes research that could lead to the next big medical breakthrough.
Please show your support by helping me reach my fundraising goal. Check back often to see updates on my progress.
Thank you for cheering me on!
