Chris Moore's Mother. Listen to today's show to hear her story.
Two very important and very loved members of the DiabetesPowerShow Family suffered from the ravages of uncontrolled Diabetes. Both of these fine people would be happy that their stories might be a cautionary tale, and inspire other people with Diabetes to take charge of their disease process.
May they both rest in peace
