What a difference ten days can make!

I feel so blessed to have two healthy kiddos and I'm asking for your support in finding a cure for my nephews Charlie & Jack, others with diabetes, and those not yet diagnosed. Each year, more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults—approximately 80 people per day—are diagnosed with T1D in the U.S. and the rate of T1D incidence among children under age 14 is estimated to increase by three percent annually worldwide! 

On February 22, I will be participating in the Walk to Cure Diabetes at the Mall of America with my family. Please consider a donation to our fundraising efforts over the next 10 days. By doing so, you can help make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. 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.

Every donation counts - thank you for your support!
