Congratulations! You have been selected to attend the American Diabetes Association’s 2013 Call to Congress: Stop Diabetes® in Washington, D.C. on March 5-7, 2013.
I was very happy to receive that email from the American Diabetes Association earlier this morning. I'm honored to be a representative for the ADA, I feel like a young child on his birthday. My level of excitement is through the roof, it is a shame that I have to wait three months until the event. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and hearing everyone's stories. We all have our own diabetes history and each person is different, I can't to be in front of congress and making a difference for everyone that is living with diabetes. It is not just to help the people living with diabetes it is for their parents, siblings, husbands, wives, and caregivers. Diabetes effects everyone and we need to raise awareness and change how people view diabetes as a disease.
As everyone knows this week has been very tough for my wife and I. I can't thank everyone enough for their kind words in this tough time, it means a lot not only to my wife and I but to our families as well. Thank you again.
