Hello my friend. Again this year, I'll be taking part in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. I’m walking because JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight type 1 diabetes (T1D), a serious autoimmune disease that affects millions of people.
Type 1 diabetes has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle, and there is nothing you can do to prevent it. Currently, there is no cure. People with T1D must manage the disease by injecting or pumping insulin several times a day, every day. But insulin is not a cure, and it does not prevent the possibility of serious complications like kidney failure, blindness, and stroke.
We can reach a world without T1D faster with your help! Will you please support my commitment by making a donation today? As the 2010 Corporate Chairman of ths special event in Jacksonville, I have been blessed to get to know so many families and young children dealing with T1D each and every day of their lives. Their stories of courage, love, and compassion are very real and have touched my heart. Please join me this year in supporting them in finding a cure !
It is faster and easier than ever to donate. Just click “Visit My Personal Page” below to donate online. JDRF is making meaningful progress because of gifts like yours. Any amount, great or small, brings JDRF closer to its goal of moving scientific advances from the laboratory to clinical trials and into the hands of people with T1D.
