Hello my dear friends, praying this day finds you doing well. The mission that I would like to talk about today, is diabetes awareness. As most of you know, I have diabetes. My sister and I are both type 1 diabetics. My dad, and brother are both type 2 diabetics. My oldest brother passed away on June 8th of this year from diabetes, he was only 56. He was also a type 1 diabetic. My uncle passed away in July of this year from diabetes, he was a type 2. So, as you can see, this disease truly runs in my family. Diabetes is a serious, and sometimes devastating disease. I am now watching my sister suffer from kidney failure, due to her diabetes. Through the years, diabetes has caused her to have heart problems, nerve damage, hearing problems,eye problems, she even lost a toe because of diabetes. I will be 45 in November, but I feel much older because of the health problems diabetes has caused me. I have 4 heart blockages, kidney damage, I am legally blind, nerve damage in my hands, feet, and stomach. I am determined to fight this disease with all I have. I will fight in my brothers memory, and for the battle my sister is fighting. I will be walking in the diabetes walk in Chattanooga Tennessee on October 11. Please, if you feel lead, click on the link on my sidebar, go to the site, and make a donation. It is more than a worthy cause, it is my hearts cause. Prayers for a cure would be much appreciated. Blessings to you all.
