Just days after his very close friend of more than 30 years was hospitalized with a severe infection stemming from complications with diabetes, the country superstar is opening up about the effects of diabetes on him and others. 

On Tuesday (Oct 11th), Tim McGraw posted a message to fans asking for prayers after learning that one of his closest family friends, Carmen Gonzales, had been hospitalized with a very serious infection. 


Say a prayer for Carmen We love this special woman

Today, he released a video statement about how diabetes has affected him, his family, his friends, and his fans – and encouraged people affected by the disease to share their story. 

Tim has long been known as a big supporter of education and research in the fight against diabetes, and this was a perfect way to communicate that.

The video is a partnership with America’s Diabetes Challenge and they ask caregivers/loved ones to share their stories about how they help set and reach their family and friend’s A1C goals. 

Watch this heartwarming video in support of helping our friends, family, and loved ones with diabetes!
