As many of you know, Emma and Anna have been dealing with type-1 diabetes, collectively, for over 15 years now. Emma, now 11 years old, was diagnosed just after her 3rd birthday. Anna, now 9 years old, was diagnosed just after her 2nd birthday. Together they have done roughly 38,000 finger pokes to test their blood sugars, they had done 1,600 shots in the few months they were on shots before they both went on insulin pumps, and have changed their pump sites approximately 1,800 times. We never stop thinking about diabetes....NEVER. It is on our minds 24-hours a day, 365 days per year. None of us ever gets a break from it. And while significant strides have been made in diabetes care, insulin is not a cure, merely life support. We are passionate about finding a cure to free them from these bonds in the future and you can help!!
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, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
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!
