Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!
As many of you may know, my son Mike was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 13 years old. It was a devastating blow to us and over the next several years, we navigated the overwhelming task of learning how to keep Mike's daily blood sugars stable and to keep him involved in all the things of life he loved. Once we got over the inital shock we got involved with JDRF and we were among the founding families of our local chapter. Over the years we have participated in the Walk to Cure Diabetes and the Hope Gala in our fundraising attempts. This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of other riders across the country to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
Mike and his older brother John will be joining me in the Ride in Burlington VT on July 27. We will ride 100 miles. I am honored to ride for such an important cause and thrilled to be riding with my sons. I have worked with JDRF for 13 years and am so impressed with their focus, vision and determination to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
