Hey!! We are again walking in honor of Maya 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. As you may know, Maya was diagnosed when she was 9 years old. She's been dealing with this disease for almost 2 years now!
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. This is DIFFERENT from camp, which give Maya an opportunity to learn about disease management and to meet other kids like her. This research is VERY important if we are to ever cure this lifelong scary disease.
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!
