Hello! This year, we will 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.
Kaitlyn was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on December 9th, 2003 - 9 years ago this year, when she was nine years old. It is hard to believe that she has been a diabetic for nearly one half of her life!
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. We want to be able to one day tell you how many years Kaitlyn had diabetes - any how many years Kaitlyn has been diabetes-free!
To see Kaitlyn's updated video and diabetes through her eyes, please visit You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA5QuvDdY4o&feature=related and check out our website for more information, visit http://www.smgrep.com/kaitlyn.
We appreciate the support we have received from family and friends over the years. On dark days throughout the year, the support we receive for the JDRF golf tournament and walk keeps us going! We hope you will join us for our 9th walk this year.
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!
God bless you!
