As many of you know, my son, Brad, has had Type 1 Diabetes since age nine. It tears your heart out to see your child go through this. Brad must test his blood sugar four to ten times a day-sometimes more, if it's a sick day. Brad does not complain. He is the bravest, strongest young man I've ever known. He has a very full plate as a full-time college student, playing on their ice-hockey team and fitting in time for community service.
I'll be taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away. I remember a couple of weeks after Brad was diagnosed (and out of the hospital) he asked me "when are the shots going to stop?". I'll never forget that day.
Your support really does help! Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
