IF those celebs have all that fame and are afraid of what it would do their careers, that is understandable. Yet once they reach the point, why not help what they can while they can. Just a thought For if they give back to those people who made them famous, it just makes them realize how they would be nothing wtihout those same people supporting them. Like Sam Fuld, just a way to give back. Hugs

I remember that Mary Tyler Moore has diabetes and I don't believe she made a secret of it. I also recently read where the Tampa Bay Rays outfielder, Sam Fuld, is starting up a sports camp for kids with diabetes. It will be at USF Tampa and more info on it is available at Fuld has been a type 1 diabetic since age 10. The article appeared in the January 19 edition of the Tampa Bay Times. Here is the link to the newspaper article:

Just as we do not want to be personified by our Diabetes
I am sure they do not want to as well.
They compete in a tough Job market and being known by their health issues would not help that. Who knows how sick they are and all the side issues that go along with it.
We do not want to go around wearing the label Diabetes
nor do some of them.
