I could not wait to blog for this event as I suffer from diabetes in my real life. I have type 2 which is under control but before it was I suffered complications and still do. My hope is by having programs like this we will bring awareness. We can all fight this disease together.

According to the World Health Organization, almost 400 million people worldwide are affected by diabetes. A group of caring persons who are affected by diabetes personally or who have very close friends and family members with diabetes, decided to create Team Diabetes of Second Life. Team Diabetes of Second Life is an official and authorized team of The American Diabetes Association.
Our focus is to bring awareness and dispel the myths of diabetes. We will hold a variety of fundraisers in support of The American Diabetes Association and we invite you to plan your fundraising events to help fight this global epidemic.
The following people are working hard to bring Team Diabetes of Second Life to Second Life! Team Diabetes of Second Life was founded by Jessii2009 Warrhol and Johannes1977 Resident. The structure of Team Diabetes of Second Life is in the form of an advisory board. At the head of the advisory board is the coordinator. Neither the members of the advisory board or the coordinator are paid for their work, contributions, or services to Team Diabetes of Second Life.
