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.
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!
This is a personal event for my family. My brother's youngest son is a diabetic. He is 15 now and has been dealing with this disease since he was five. As a family, we have raised over $22,000 for this cause. I hope you can help us surpass $25,000 this year. No donation is too small.
You can donate on line at jdrf.org. Follow the links to the walk for the cure. My team name is Da DeFlorio Team. If you prefer, you can send a check to me at 24 S. Greenwood Ave Park Ridge, Il 60068. Remember, you donation is tax deductible. Thank you for anything you can do to help.
