Hello to all!
For the 5th year, I am participating in the East Lansing JDRF walk to cure Diabetes.
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. This includes my dear friend Kim's daughter Leah who at 13 years old deals with some pretty adult issues and does it with a smile. She actually has a port that is connected to her at all times to deliver her medicine but still manages to be active and live as normal a life as possible.
I can't tell you how much I admire her for her bravery and I hope to support her once again this year with your help!
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. It has already made a difference in Leah's life by supporting research that resulted in making her port as comfortable and non-conspicuous as possible. Very important for teenagers!
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!
See the video in the link that Leah's older sister put together that illustrate's how she lives life everyday.
