As you probably already know, our son, Jack, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in January, 2009. He was 11 when he was diagnosed, and has spent the last 4 1/2 years managing his care with finger pricks, insulin boluses, site changes, and doctors' appointments. Maintaining a "normal" blood sugar is near to impossible, but keeping it within range helps to stave off complications later in life.
This year, we'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 Diabetes is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
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 support us in our walk? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
