Welcome Good Day Oregon Viewers - Fight Diabetes 2007
Hello! Perhaps you've just arrived at my blog after watching us today on Good Day Oregon from 5am to 9am.
Please do visit the Diabetes Category on this blog and read my personal story about my Type I Diabetes. If you can, please do Donate to the American Diabetes Association. If their site is down, do try again!
If you want to spread the word or email this to your friends, just send them to http://www.hanselman.com/fightdiabetes. We're trying to raise $50,000 and the folks on Team Hanselman and this blog have raised $25,000 so far! Thank you very much to those who have donated! Your money will go directly to diabetes research funded by the American Diabetes Association.
