Charity "Hey Sugar"
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on July 13, 2007, at 17 years old. Prior to my diagnosis, I, like many others, thought that “Diabetes” is a disease where you simply can’t eat sugar, and it’s much more than that. After living with this disease for now 13 years and surviving multiple hospitalizations due to Diabetic Ketoacidosis and now having stable diabetes, it’s time for me to do what I can to help end this disease once and for all. The JDRF aims to eradicate diabetes and donating these proceeds is the first step as someone that has suffered firsthand. I’m hopeful that during my lifetime I will see their mission to fruition and know that I, in some way and alongside others, helped others. - Phoenix, The Premier Diabetic Drag Queen
