diabetes wellness program
FROM THE YWCA of ASHEVILLE "Thanks to an overwhelming outpouring of support, we have exceeded our $25,000 fundraising goal for our Diabetes Wellness program. With $26,110 in gifts, we will be able to continue providing this vital program to people with diabetes.It has been a powerful experience to see Diabetes Wellness go from being owned by the state to being owned by the community. On behalf of the people served by this program, we would like to express our deepest gratitude for your generosity," says Ami Worthen, marketing director for the YWCA of Asheville.
Walt Roberson is, as he puts it, "an ol’ drill sergeant" and a Vietnam vet who spent more than 30 years working his beat as an Asheville police officer. He’s used to being tough, and at more than 6 feet tall, he’s probably never been a small man. But now 60, the retired city resident says he came close to "doing something stupid" after he left the force: He gained weight till he was pushing 400 pounds, had knee surgery, was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and got so depressed that suicide wasn't much too close in his mind.
