Description


This issue of diabetes in the African American community has hit very close to home and we decided it was time to not only help Daniel but also others who may be experiencing the impact of this illness.

On Saturday, September 30th, 2017 from 6pm to 10pm at Shady Oak Baptist Church in Greenville, SC we will be hosting a Diabetes Benefit Musical to help raise funds for Daniel’s transplant as well as for the American Diabetes Association. We are looking for businesses that will join us through an ad, donation or sponsorship as we share in music and hope with all in attendance to work together to beat this disease.


We are hosting this Diabetes Benefit Musical in honor of my son, Daniel Williams. Daniel was diagnosed with diabetes as a child and has been battling the effects of it in his health ever since. Being an African American and having the illness in his family lineage put him at an increased risk. He has fought through this illness and has overcome issues with his eyes, legs and other organs as a result. This year, at age 30, Daniel was told that he would now be in need of a kidney transplant due to even further complications of the disease. He was forced to take off weeks of time at his work and was alerted that his medical insurance would not fully cover his treatment or the transplant. Since that time, our family has stepped in to work more jobs in order to aid and secure more finances for Daniel to receive the kidney transplant that he needs. Unfortunately, even with our greatest efforts we were still unable to raise enough funds. Proceeds from this musical will go towards the American Diabetes Association as well as Daniel's treatment.
