This Auction has very special meaning for me since I lost my older brother to diabetes related complications at the young age of 39 in 2004. What ever you have to auction or give will help, every penny raised goes to find a cure for this life changing disease. Give if you can, if you can’t give…then share this post with as many people as you are able to get the word out. Thank you.
