Hello! My name is Logan Messenger I am 14 years old and I have had Type 1 diabetes for 10 years now. My biggest dream is that one day a Cure is found. For the last 7 years my family and I have been participating in the JDRF
walks in Lafayette, LA. I want to especially thank my aunt Kimberly Saucier and my favorite uncle Matt for spending a great deal of time planning and spreading the word for the walk along with family and friends that continue to support the cause and I want to thank everyone for devoting their time surpporting my dream to find a cure...
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them just like me.
Did you know that:
- T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
- T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
- Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
- Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a 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 my dream for a cure a reality!
Thank you for your continued support!
