Dear Friends and Family. The Rivera clan will 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.
It has been three years since Sophia's diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes and as you have all seen, she has bounced back and seems to be healthy and looking strong again. Our lives have changed forever due to this damn disease. She is the friendliest, happiest 5 year old and a true champion. She has to get 3 shots a day and checking blood sugars 5x a day. Yes, my sweet Sophia gets poked with a needle almost 8 times a day and this will be her world until we find a cure.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
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. Every dollar helps! Together, we can make the cure a reality!
Thank you for all of your love and support!
