Freda’s Story (Diabetes)

Freda's Story (diabetes)Hi, my name is Freda. I’m 43 years old and a mother of 3; an 8 year old boy, girl twins, and an 11 year old boy.

I’m a diabetic. I’m learning new things, like how to eat and take care of myself. It isn’t easy. I have seen this website and I’m going to fight like a girl! I will learn how to be strong and one tough cookie. I have decided to start hosting fundraisers because of this website. It gave me hope that I could help.
