Dear Friends and Family, welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
As many of you know, our son Patrick was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes last October at age 9. It has been nearly a year since his diagnoses and he is doing fantastic. Going from multiple insulin injections daily (administered by himself, no less!) to now being on an insulin pump that has made his daily life much easier. He is such a strong and brave boy, we are extremely proud of his abilities to manage his diabetes and he is confident and positive there will be a cure one day in his future - he says he'll go from having Type 1 to Type None!
Our family is proud supporters of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and November is National Diabetes Month. November 2, 2013 is the annual Walk to Cure Diabetes, which we will participate in as a team and everyone is invited to join our team "Got Betes?"
Please consider supporting Patrick and this great Foundation. Patrick's daily challenges are persistent and life-long. Incredible advances have been made towards a cure and, like Patrick; we are convinced a cure is in his future.

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
