Hello! This year, we 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.
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. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
On March 15, 2010 Alexandra Jaya Khilnani was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes - type 1, which means that she will be insulin dependent for the rest of her life. She is now required to constantly check her blood sugar by pricking her tiny little fingers six to eight times a day and must have an injection of insulin after each meal and snack. In addition, a tightly controlled diet and scheduled
food intake is now part of Alexandra's everyday life. But this insulin that she takes is not
a cure; it's merely Alexandra's life support.
As parents, we try from the moment our children are born to protect them from any harm. We, as a family, have made it our mission to do everything we can to help find a cure for this disease. We
are hoping a cure will be found soon, but research cannot be done without funding. Please contribute anything you can. Even the smallest amout can make a big difference.
