Manassas, Virginia (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
American Diabetes Alert Day is Tuesday, March 27, 2012. In support of American Diabetes Association’s call to action, during the month of March 2012, TMB Tax Services clients will receive a percentage-matched discount off tax preparation services for donating to the American Diabetes Association.
For example, a $50 donation to the American Diabetes Association during the month of March will result in a 50% discount of tax preparation services this year! Additionally, those clients itemizing deductions will also be able to deduct their donation to the American Diabetes Association on next year’s tax returns!
Why is Diabetes Alert Day important?
Diabetes is a serious disease that strikes nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States. An additional 79 million, or one in three American adults have prediabetes, which puts them at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is called a “silent killer” because a quarter of those with the disease – 7 million – do not know they have it. For many, diagnosis may come seven to ten years after the onset of the disease. Therefore, early diagnosis is critical to successful treatment and delaying or preventing some of its complications such as heart disease, blindness, kidney disease, stroke, amputation and death.
