Between Deborah and her sister diabetes has been in their family for 32 yers. Deborah herself has been diagnosed for 27 years. Everyone has heard of diabetes but this condition remains massively misunderstood. 32 years on and Deborah is completing the Wicklow 100km cycle on June 10th to raise much needed funds for Diabetes Ireland. Donations will be spread across research, awareness, education and helplines – which have been of value to her personally!
