Carrie – Sterling, IL
Before having his shoulder surgery, my husband and father of 2 was diagnosed as a diabetic. This was a surprise to us all, due to our lack of knowledge, the fact that diabetes doesn’t know age, that my husband is 5 years younger than myself and seemed to be what we thought healthy. Doctor’s told him to start taking medicine and soon he could have the surgery, but we thought there had to be another way to fight back. So we started doing our research and found that simply changing our diets and exercise would help.
That’s when we started riding our bikes but not alone, as a family strong and ready to fight diabetes! In 3 months, the doctors were shocked to see that my husband’s count had gone down and was able to have his surgery.That was 2 years ago and we are still biking together as a family! We love to ride!
