On Sunday, September 15th, our family will be participating in the Walk to Cure Diabetes at Dynetics in Research Park in Huntsville. We would love to have our family and friends come and join us.
Anna Catherine was diagnosed with diabetes on December 9, 2009 at the age of 4 1/2. We never dreamed diabetes would become a part of our daily lives. With God's grace and guidance, we take diabetes one step at a time.
Anna Catherine bravely receives four+ insulin shots a day. She has her finger pricked on average six times a day, sometimes as many as ten or more. She is a trooper. She does sometimes ask, "When are they going to find a cure?" And also, "Why do I have to have diabetes?" Lately she will say, " I wish there was no such thing as diabetes."
By participating in the Walk to Cure Diabetes, we hope to raise money to support the research required to find a cure. We also hope to provide Anna Catherine with support to let her know she is not alone in her fight against diabetes. YOU CAN HELP!!! 1. Make a contribution in support of Anna Catherine's Team: Dance for Diabetes by making an online donation or mailing a check made payable to JDRF. Every dollar raised is one step closer to a cure.
2. Come walk in support of Anna Catherine on Sunday, September 15th and be an active participant of her team: Dance for Diabetes. There will be food, fun and more! The fun begins at 1:00 at Dynetics At Research Park 1002 Explorer Blvd Huntsville, Al 35806. The Walk begins at 2:30. Carrabba's Italian Grill will be providing our lunch.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? All we need you to do is click on the "Join this Team" button or make a donation. It’s simple, fast, and fun!
Anna Catherine is an active eight year old who loves to dance. God put dancing in Anna Catherine's heart. She picked the name for her team: Dance for Diabetes. We hope you will come and Dance with her.
