Thank you Dr. Nguyen!
Also, at my request, my doctor at Kaiser has been kind enough to supply me with a work modification letter stating that he wants me to work no longer than 24 hours a week until Dec. 31. Wahoo! Now of course that means that if no one bids on my auction I'm gonna be a broke ass fool until next year but it also means I should have about 4 days off weekly to focus on my health, raising money for my project and re-focusing on FireChild Music Education!
Ok, now for the first set back. I contacted the American Diabetes Association and it doesn't seem that they are interested in endorsing my fundraising project. They did however say that they would foward my information to a program they just started called Shaping America's Health which, I'm told, deals solely with obesity and its related health problems. Obviously these do not know with whom they are dealing! I don't give up that easily and I will have their endorsement! Then, in a year or so, when I present them with a check for $50,000 on the Ophra Winfrey what are they gonna say then! What?! I got plans folks! This ain't no game! Mark my words...250lbs...$50,000 for diabetes research, Oprah!
