Hi guys,

Leon doesn't know that I am doing this, but I am really really worried about him and I'm hoping that we can all come together one more time to help out an old friend.

Leon came in to get food at Outback tonight and looked like he was struggling. I sat and talked with him for a while and learned that he doesn't have a job right now and is short on his insulin. A side effect from having high blood sugar is weight loss, and Leon is thinner than I have ever seen him. His face was pale and he was skin and bones. I am truly worried for him. His father's health isn't good and he is taking care of him right now, so I know it has to be hard for Leon to find a job while being a full time care giver.

I know Leon will probably refuse the money at first, but I know that he could really use it, in fact, his life may depend on it. I don't know a lot about his current situation, but from what he shared with me and what I know about Type 1 diabetes, he won't make it too long if he keeps this up. He needs serious health care, diabetic supplies, and he told me that he still really wants to give his fiancé the wedding she deserves.

I am taking Leon down to University Hospital tomorrow to try and get him some treatment and enrolled in some sort of financial assistance program to help with all of his supplies. I hope you will all help me to get him back on his feet. :)
