Everyone involved in Brenda Novak's Online Auction to raise money for diabetes research received her email over the weekend stating she has raised over $250,000 with the raffle tickets still selling. Final total to come soon as Brenda is enjoying some well deserved time with her family at Disneyland!
CONGRATULATIONS Brenda!!! That is a staggering amount of money that will go to help find a cure!
Thanks to everyone who participated. Without the steady support of everyone out there, this would not have been possible.
The above picture demonstrates all of the health problems a person with diabetes encounters. Diabetes does not just affect one body system, but your entire body! The number of people that die from diabetes or diabetic related complications is growing every year. That is why work like Brenda's is so very important! I'll keep you posted on the final talley!
I look forward to next year's auction! As for my prize, I bid on some ad space to promote my book, THE DOCTOR'S DECEPTION to be released June 25th, 2008 by THE WILD ROSE PRESS. I also threw in $$ for the raffle! FUN!
Next week, will see a return of regular Diabetes Monday Facts~
