Hello! The Moehlman family is once again taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with a 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.
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.
Our 4-year-old son, Danny, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last August. As a result, besides closely monitoring his diet, Danny must test his blood sugar and take insulin at least four times a day. This equates to approximately 1400 finger sticks and 1400 shots in his arms and legs every year. And this will continue every year for the rest of his life unless a cure is found.
As you can imagine, this has forever changed all of our lives. In our attempt to encourage and support Danny, we have formed Team Moehlman to: 1, raise money to support the research required to find a cure; and 2, provide Danny with support and let him know that he is not alone in his fight against diabetes.
To accomplish our goal of trying to form a large team to show our support for Danny, we are actively recruiting anyone who would like to join us on our team and raise money in support of Danny and the overall Walk to Cure Diabetes.
You can help!
1. Make a generous contribution in support of Team Moehlman (cash or checks made out to JDRF). You can also make an online donation by visiting www.jdrf.org. Any amount is welcome.
2. Come walk in support of Danny on October 7 and be an active participant on Team Moehlman. All we request is that you register (www.jdrf.org); collect money from people you know, including yourself; and then join us for a fun day at the Walk.
Please know that more than 80% of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education.
We greatly appreciate your consideration and support of this most worthy cause. We look forward to having as many people as possible join us on October 2. Even if you can't join us on the walk, we appreciate any and all donations made to Team Danny as part of our overall fundraising.
If you have any questions or need any additional information, please don't hesitate to call or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) us. Again, thank you from all of us for your generous support of Danny.
