Welcome to Amy Van Dyke's Personal Page

Hello! This year, 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.

Our son, Alex (now 8 yrs old) was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2009. He checks his blood sugar 4 to 6 times a day and every time he eats, we have to check the number of carbs and give him insulin. It is very time consuming, but he's doing a great job. We are really proud of him. We hope that one day there will be a cure so he doesn't have to do this the rest of his life.

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!
