I'm a tech, and often fix computers in hospitals. My heart races when I hear the CODE BLUE alarm in hospitals, since I myself have coded.

Wow! I'll have to remember this foundation name. Parsons Foundation.
JDRF's Promise Ball Gala drew in big donors, with The Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation contributing nearly $500,000 towards Type 1 Diabetes.

Story
Tagline
Rich the Diabetic - Don't die like I did . . . . . lifelong type 1 diabetic for over 45 years, cardiac arrest survivor, . . overall Badass.
Introduction
I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1970, before my 2nd birthday.  I feel lucky that I was diagnosed so young, because I've never known life without it.  When I was 34, I suffered a major complication of type 1 diabetes.  I suffered cardiac arrest.  Undiagnosed heart disease had clogged my arteries, and I didn't know it.  After my recovery from this life changing event, I started to become involved in the world of health, in an effort to extend my life expectancy.  Now I try to help others either prevent, or control their diabetes, by sharing what I learn about nutrition, exercise, diabetes, and more.  I hope that something you find here helps you in your diabetes life.  
Bragging rights
Survived cardiac arrest in 2003, and 45 years of diabetes. I am immortal, and I am not alone. Let there be more than 1.
