Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
This year on November 2nd, the Woodworth family will be taking part in our second JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with a half-million others nationwide. Our goal: to raise $89 million to fund research for better treatments and a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications.
For those of you who may not know our daughter, Keegan was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes at the young age of 15 months old, and she spent a week in the ICU of Phoenix Children's Hospital regulating her blood sugar levels. Now at three and a half years old, Keegan is adapting well to her schedule of five daily blood sugar level checks and four daily insulin injections. While Keegan has become used to the maintenance routine, she still struggles with the highs and lows of this potentially dangerous disease.
I'm asking you to please help support our fundraising efforts with a donation. There are no donations too small, all donations are generous and appreciated. Even just five dollars makes a difference and gets us that much closer to our team goal of $1,500 when we all pitch in for the cause.
It's so easy to donate - simply click on the link at the bottom of this message to donate online. If you prefer, you can mail your gift check to me at the address listed below and I will get it to our local office. Please make the check out to JDRF and include my name in the ?Memo? section.
