Step Out to Stop Diabetes - Denver
October 20, 2012
1295_ 10/16/12 - Nikaela Nelson and her Team, '#@%! Diabetes', are Stepping Out because they want to make a difference in the lives of all those affected by diabetes. Niko said, "We want to stop diabetes in its tracks. We are Stepping Out because we know, first hand, what it takes to live with diabetes. More than 3650 finger pricks in a year, at least 182 infusion site changes or 2190+ injections per year." Convoluted (yet life saving) mathematical gymnastics at every meal. (That's barely even a beginning...) We choose to Step Out in order to Stomp Out Diabetes. And, we want You to join us. Please, make a donation to a team member, or join our team . You can walk with us, run for us, or cheer us on virtually. We know that when we bring together dedicated team members and kind donors, the power we have as a group far outweighs what any of us could do alone.
Listen to Nikaela, in 7 minutes she will tell you, there are several types of diabetes and that by 2050 it is estimated that 1-in-3 people will suffer from some form of diabetes. It's a very expensive disease, costing her family $1,000 + each month. Nikaela says," In 2050 that might significantly impact our economy." Listen as this 12 year old has more to tell you about this fight and why it is so important to her and to you....
