Ron Santo & Diabetes

May 18, 2010

I know this interview is several years old.  However, I also am one of millions of Americans who struggle with diabetes.  This video is an inspiration to many of how diabetes can be maintained and kept under control.  Don’t let diabetes be the victor.  Diabetics can do anything with the right education and motivation.
