Quest for a Cure


    I am on a quest.  My quest began on December 1, 2008 when Lance, my son, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 2 years of age.

    Type 1 Diabetes is a chronic disease where your body cannot make insulin which is required to get sugars to your cells.  To combat this illness Lance must check his blood sugar at least 4 times a day and he must get 4 insulin shots a day.  He must also closely monitor his carb intake at all meals and snacks.  Wow, that is a big burden to put onto an 8 year old boy.

    Lance will not grow out of this condition…he is inflicted with it for life.  But there is hope with your help.  I am joining JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) to raise money for treatments and cures for Type 1 Diabetes.  I will be riding in the JDRF Ride to Cure in Tahoe on a challenging 72 mile course that sports two lofty climbs (800 ft. and 1000 ft.)  I have already begun my training to reach my goal of completing the course in 4.5 hours.

    My Quest for a Cure will not stop until this disease is cured!  Please support my quest by donating to JDRF.  This is of course a completely tax deductible donation.  You can donate online by going to my personal web page:

    Thanks for your support,
