Bears coach Lovie Smith and his wife Maryanne recently served as the honorary chairs for the American Diabetes Association annual brunch at the Soldier Field United Club.

The event raises money for diabetes research, programs and advocacy.

Smith will be the featured speaker at By the Hand Club of Kids' annual Spring Benefit on April 8 at Soldier Field, and he is also also currently serving as the spokesperson for Ronald McDonald House Charities.

A new house is being constructed in Chicago and the Bears are actively supporting the cause. Bears Care, the charitable beneficiary of the Chicago Bears, donated $10,000 to fund a "Bears Room" at the new house.

Good for Lovie and his wife. Diabetes is very wide spread and people need to be educated on it weather you have it or not. Very young teenagers have past away because of not either being checked out, overweight or just blind to the subject. Everyone over 30 that hasnt been checked out should be. Realy anyone any age that is at risk because of health or weight should be checked out.

Mr.Sean Jensen could you help out the people of Chicago and Find out if there is a clinic to get checked out for Diabetes at a discount price or Free. Millions of American suffer from this and not even know but yet cant afford to get the pricey blood work done.


Thank you,
Timmer
