Support Nathan Laeupple in the 2011 Walk to Cure Diabetes

    Hello Family and Friends!

    I'm writing to you to ask for your support in a very special cause that is near and dear to me.

    I'll be taking part in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Walk to Cure Diabetes along with a half-million other walkers across the country on February 26, 2011. Our goal is to raise $89 million to help fund research for a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications.

    Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes, is a devastating, often deadly disease that affects millions of people - a large and growing percentage of them children.

    Many people think type 1 diabetes can be controlled by insulin. While insulin does keep people with type 1 diabetes alive, it is NOT a cure. Aside from the daily challenges of living with type 1 diabetes, there are many severe, often fatal, complications caused by the disease.

    That's the bad news... and yes, it's pretty bad.

    The good news, though, is that a cure for type 1 diabetes is within reach. In fact, JDRF funding and leadership is associated with most major scientific breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes research to date. And JDRF funds a major portion of all type 1 diabetes research worldwide, more than any other charity.

    I'm writing to ask for your support because now more than ever, EACH of us can be a part of bringing about a cure. Each of us can make a real difference

    Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as you're able?

    Together, we can make the cure a reality.

    Thank you,

    Nathan Laeupple
