THE STORY:

HELP US FUNDRAISE FOR A CHANCE TO WIN $1,000,000 - YES, 1 MILLION - FROM REVLON

Well, it's just amazing what you find when you set out to find it. With Planet Veterans just south of Planet Military, there is always so much more to know. We sought out information on diabetes among veterans and here’s some of what we found...

Of the 9 million veterans enrolled in Veterans Affairs Healthcare (VAH) care and services, “nearly” 1 in 4 have diabetes. That’s a whopping 24% - nearly. Contributing factors to diabetes, according to VAH, are obesity (estimated at over 70% of veterans using VA services); age; lower incomes; limited access to high-quality, healthy foods; and Agent Orange and other aspects of war. Diabetes is one of the most common diagnoses in women veterans treated at VA facilities.  And depression is also prevalent among women veterans with diabetes.

We thought it would be just awesome to win this Challenge and help women veterans even more. You can help us get it done. Donate. It gets even better when you donate and start a team to encourage family and friends to do the same.
