I'm riding in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure to raise money for diabetes research, education, advocacy, and awareness.

You can see where my donations come from by visiting my interactive donation map ... https://mideml.diabetessucks.net/map (it's a geeky thing).

I may have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me!
