Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million. Over the past four years, our team (formally known as LUKE AND THE JEDI KNIGHTS but now THE JEDI KNIGHTS AND PRINCESS WARRIORS) has raised over $17,000 for diabetes research.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. My son Luke was diagnosed on November 24th, 2008. He was only 4 years old.
My daughter Reese was diagnosed on December 7th, 2011. She was only 2 years old.
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!
