Just 2 months ago we launched our inaugural GoFundMe campaign. We were on a mission to help women transform their relationship, perspective, and outlook with type 2 diabetes. Then, the unthinkable happened; the COVID-19 pandemic appeared and changed everything. Initially, we felt hopeless and helpless. It seemed as if we had hit a dead end and there was nothing we could do. With panic increasing, and the pandemic spreading, priorities have shifted. With the entire nation in survival mode, and people allocating funds on necessity, the number of donations that we’ve received has decreased significantly.
What’s even more alarming are the statistics surrounding COVID-19 and how it negatively affects the type 2 diabetes community. Through careful research, our team discovered that approximately 41% of adults in the U.S. are categorically more at risk of serious illness if they acquire the coronavirus. Naturally, individuals with comorbidities or compromised immune systems are more vulnerable and more likely to experience complications when infected with a new virus compared to their healthier counterparts. Sadly, COVID-19 has claimed the lives of many. And, 54% of those who have perished had type 2 diabetes. That is a sizeable percentage and we realize that what we do matters now more than ever. We are still on a mission to help women change their outlook, outcomes, and perspective with type 2 diabetes, but we can’t do it alone.
Women are the gatekeepers of health in their families and communities, and unfortunately, the current healthcare system is not designed to fully support them. Additionally, studies show that type 2 diabetes often manifests in more severe complications in women as opposed to men and carries a higher risk of death. With our Diabetes Mastery Program, we can not only help women lower the risk of being disproportionately affected by COVID-19 but also lower the number of deaths from diabetes overall, now and in the future. With this current pandemic looming, it is easy to become discouraged and your support is needed now more than ever. That is why we are asking everyone who has been affected or impacted by this disease to contribute. Your donations will help us to support those who need it most. Together, we can save many lives around the world!
The exciting news is that any amount you donate will give you a place in line on the list to receive a scholarship to the Diabetes Mastery Program (1st come 1st serve basis).

The Diabetes Mastery Program begins May 15th and has a duration of 12-weeks and offers a robust approach to managing type 2 diabetes and is comprised of various elements:
* Learn the “ABCs” of diabetes, A1C, Blood pressure and Cholesterol
* Gain effective stress management techniques designed for women with type 2 diabetes
* Guidance on how to engage in shared decision-making with health care providers
* Receive delicious recipes and tips on how to eat well for diabetes & weight management
* Much needed support from peers and professionals through an online community
The Diabetes Mastery Program holds great promise in managing this disease. Each program element has been shown in clinical studies to help reduce A1C in as little as six weeks. Type 2 diabetes has become a severe epidemic, and we have created an equally rigorous approach.
Awareness is the beginning of responsibility. And now that we’ve been made aware of this issue, I have a responsibility to urge you to donate to this cause. I’m confident that we’ve all been affected by this growing epidemic, whether it has plagued a family member or close friend. We need to reach a goal of $150,000 and beyond to begin our mission of transforming the lives of women currently living with type 2 diabetes.
We care very deeply for all who are a part of the type 2 diabetes community. We are eternally grateful for your continued support and encouragement. Your offerings today will have an enormous impact on the lives of these women. With your help, we can ensure that no woman will ever have to suffer lifelong complications of this debilitating disease.
With deep appreciation,
Founder & President
