Faces of Diabetes Fundraiser at Vino

Those of you who know Vino in the Valley owner, Larry, know that he’s very passionate about juvenile diabetes.  His nephew, Nathan, was diagnosed at the age of 13 and Larry seen firsthand the effects this disease can have on young lives.  Unlike adult-onset diabetes (also referred to as type 2), juvenile diabetes cannot be reversed through exercise and diet like type 2 can.  That means a lifetime of constant management, medical care and sometimes complications.  What we need is more knowledge about the cause of this disease and funding for a cure.  We’re inviting you all to join Larry and the Vino in the Valley staff in supporting this cause by attending a great event we have each summer at Vino, The Faces of Diabetes.
