Some very sad news today, I'm afraid. David Mendosa, fellow diabetes journalist who's been a fixture on the Web for over 10 years now, lost his beautiful wife Catherine Lee Nord on Tuesday. She was 69. She died of complications of diabetes. I have to admit, my heart nearly stopped when I heard this.
Take a moment to read David's tribute to his wife at HealthCentral.com.
For those who'd like to reach out, the family has asked for contributions in honor of Catherine Lee Nord to the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.
