More than 29 million people in the United States, or nearly 10 percent of the population, have diabetes and over one-third of adults have pre-diabetes. When diabetes is not well controlled, people with diabetes are at an increased risk of serious health complications including blindness, amputation, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and premature death. Because of Brandon funds go toward initiatives to promote awareness of this serious disease as well as programs to support those living with diabetes.
