Dear Family and Friends,
On October 27th I will be running in the Marine Corps Marathon. As an avid runner, I’m excited for the challenge, but also want to use this opportunity to help others by raising money for important diabetes research. Please support me in my efforts to run 26.2 miles for a cause that means so much to me.
Diabetes is one of the most common and serious chronic diseases in the United States. The first person I knew with diabetes was my dear grandmother Joan. Her diabetes was not severe and she was lucky to have access to resources including great doctors to help keep her blood sugars in check. Some of the diabetic patients I've met through medical school have not been so lucky; they have lost limbs, permanently damaged their kidneys, or developed blindness because of their diabetes.
You can help! All of the money I raise for the Diabetes Action Research and Education Foundation will fund research to prevent, treat, and cure diabetes. Every dollar counts so please donate what you can. Together, we can lessen the burden of diabetes.
Thanks so much for your support and encouragement!
