Hello! This year, we will again be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes. Hannah was diagnosed with diabetes six years ago at the age of five. Type 1, or juvenile 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. Hannah wears an insulin pump 24/7 to control her diabetes. She aslo wears a continuous glucose monitor to help us keep better track of her blood sugars as they rise and fall. We hope that with further research, there may someday be an even easier and more accurate means for her to treat her diabetes.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please consider donating to this cause? We also invite anyone to walk with us and help raise money for our team "Hannah's Hounds". Together, we can make the cure a reality!
Erica, Noel, Kyle and Hannah
