D.J. Spinderella, member of the iconic hip-hop group Salt-n-Pepa, has personally seen the severe consequences diabetes has on not only the person with the disease, but an entire family. Her own mother passed away from complications of diabetes, and now she watches her brother and young nephew live with the disease every day. For her family and millions of others, Spinderella is truly passionate about joining the movement to Stop Diabetes®.
Spinderella wants the public to know that diabetes doesn’t have to conquer you. Living a healthy, active lifestyle, she stresses, is key. With a sensible diet and exercise, you can take charge of your diabetes and help prevent its deadly complications. For those at risk for type 2 diabetes, you can even prevent or delay the disease.
Whether on tour, meeting her fans or just hanging out at home with her family, Spinderella is committed to spreading this message across the country and ending diabetes once and for all.
