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.
This is a cause that is close to my heart because my brother, Tom was diagnosed with diabetes in 1997, when he was fifteen years old. Today he is twenty-nine years old and has been treating this illness twenty-four hours a day, three hundred and sixty-five days a year for the past 15 years.
Tom's Team walks in his name, to support Tom and the millions of other people around the world affected by this devastating disease, 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. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
