The numbers afflicted with diabetes is staggering, and growing dramatically, over 30 million today in the U.S. alone, 10% of the entire American population. The public cost of treating diabetes exceeds $250 billion per year. More education and treatment is needed, especially in low income communities. Cures must be found.
Ron’s diabetes is well managed, but millions of others are not. Cures for diabetes must be found. Ron and his wife, Barbie, are donating at least 50% of the proceeds of all sales of 28: The Missing Amendment to diabetes research.
My wife, Barbie, and I are happy to announce that we will be donating sale proceeds from 28: The Missing Amendment to diabetes research and education through the following organizations:
