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.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. My good friends, Abe and Curt Strader, 11-year-old twins, have lived with juvenile diabetes since they were 2 years old.
Here is a link to a short video that gives a picture of what Abe and Curt think, know and believe about living with Type 1 diabetes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9EdAU1NPlE
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!
