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.
We walk every year on behalf of our beautiful Granddaughter Jenna Grace who was diagnosed at 16 months with type 1 diabetes. She has just celebrated her 5th birthday. There has never been a more beautiful, healthy, active child. Our prayer is that someday she will be free of the insulin pump and frequent sugar checks that have become a normal part of her day.
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!
