Hello! This year I will continue the adventure of JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of other riders across the country.
As you know this cause is near and dear to my heart! Our 8 year old son, Carson, has been living with Type 1 diabetes for a little over three years now. Plus, ironically, our dear friends Adam (now 19) was diagnosed just one month after Carson and Evan (10) was diagnosed in August 2011. And this January, the 17 year old daughter of a co-worker of mine was diagnosed with T1D. So, ACDC (Adam and Carson for a Diabetes Cure) Roadies are going to hit the road and pedal 100 miles to help find that cure!
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
