Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes. This year marks a big year for me, on December 3rd I will mark my 16 year anniversary of having Type 1 diabetes. JDRF has helped me over the past 16 years manage my diabetes. I walk so one day no one will have to manage this disease. I walk so parents will not have to have sleepless nights worrying about their child going low in the middle of the night. I walk to prove to everyone that people with Type 1 diabetes can accomplish anything they want and I walk so children do not have to be embarrassed because they are different because of diabetes.
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!
