THE STORY:

Every man has a story - On September 17, 1969, Duane Pozza approached the batter's box at Antonian High with a youthful cockiness, and raised his bat in the mold of the Great Bambino's "called shot."  A 54 mph fastball came blazing down the plate and Duane swung with all his might, smashing the baseball toward center field. It landed with an unspecatcular thud in center field before bouncing over the wall for a ground rule double.  And the legend was born. 

Every man has a hero - Duane's fame was shortlived, as a knee injury cut short his baseball career before he could obtain those elusive four World Series Championshps like the Babe. But with the knee injury came a diagnosis - Diabetes Type 1.  He has, of course, lived with it ever since - including marrying Roni Garza, having a successful career, and raising 6 kids to whom he has provided an endless supply of sage advice and idioms - the finish line speech.  To his children he is a beloved father, to his wife a beloved husband (most likely), and to so many a beloved friend, mentor, and confidant.  

Every man has a hero - Duane deserves better than diabetes.  Every man has a story - may we find a cure before the legend's ends.

Below are all the facts you need to know about Diabetes, which make this mission so important. Donate even $5, and let's make a difference.

Diabetes is growing at an alarming rate. Nearly 29 million children and adults are living with diabetes in the United States, while another 79 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing the disease. The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight against diabetes and its deadly consequences.

To fulfill this mission, the American Diabetes Association:

  • funds and advocates for scientific research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes 
  • publishes scientific findings
  • fights for the rights of people with diabetes
  • provides information and services to people with diabetes, their families, health professionals and the public

The Association acts on its mission through a number of critical programs and activities that are directed to a broad range of constituents encompassing consumers, research scientists, health care professionals, corporations and communities.

When you donate:

  • You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
  • You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes.
  • You fund life-saving research.
  • You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes to live well.
