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.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
I am walking in honor and in memory of Addison Parker, a beautiful 4 year old little girl that was lost to sudden onset childhood diabetes. Addie fought for her life but passed away in August 2011. I am walking in hope of a cure, so that no parent ever has to lose their child that way, so that nobody ever again has to feel that pain.
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!
I thank you in advance and PLEASE! REQUEST THE TEST! IT IS NOT ROUTINE!
