Hello Friends! As most of you know, I was diganosed with Type 1 diabetes on January 21, 1990. Although I've had my ups and downs with diabetes, I decided early on not to let it stop me from achieving my dreams. A few years ago, I had a dream to bring women with diabetes together for the purpose of supporting, educating and advocating for each other. While creating DiabetesSisters has been A LOT of work, it is extremely rewarding to see and talk to so many other women with diabetes. My life is so much better now that I have an entire Sisterhood to support me in my diabetes journey.
In 2012, my dream is to reach all women with diabetes in the US who are in need of sisterly support and education. That's where you come in! To achieve this dream, I'll need you help. Will you help me by donating money so that we can continue to reach women with diabetes through beneficial programs such as the PODS Meetup Program, the Weekend for Women Conference, the orange:will campaign, and the SisterMatch Program?
I hope you will come out to the Walk on May 20, 2012 at 8am in downtown Raleigh, NC. My daughter, Summer, is leading the Girl Power Team and she wants to have the largest team in the walk. So, if you are looking for a team to join, please consider joining her Team.
Thanks so much for your support today and throughout the last 22 years that I have lived with diabetes!
