Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
The American Diabetes Association estimates that 24 million children and adults in the United States live with Diabetes currently and an additional 57 million Americans are at risk for Type 2 Diabetes. If current trends continue, one out of every three children born today will face a future with Diabetes.
Soul Function Band along with nonprofit sponsor Coastal Carolina Sertoma Club is hosting the first annual “Drum Out Diabetes” event to raise the awareness on the latest information on Diabetes treatments and prevention and bring attention to the alarming rise in Diabetes on the Grand Strand and the Low Country. Diabetes is a serious disease that leads to potentially life threatening complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness and amputation.
All of us know someone who has this disease and we know that Diabetes is an equal opportunity aggressor that attacks all regardless of age, race or creed. Mr. James Canty, a wonderfully talented musician from Myrtle Beach has been afflicted with a loss of vision due to diabetes, which motivated us to take up this fight.
Please join us March 6, 1pm at Planet Hollywood in our quest to aid the treatment, prevention and cure. The event will feature educational speakers, a great lunch and concert performances from the renowned beach and blues artist Jim Quick, Soul Function Band and Ten Toes Up.
