Hello! This year, our family will be walking again this year 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. This year we are looking at milestone-it has been 10 years since Justin was diagnosed. It is amazing how he has changed-but the one thing that has not changed is diabetes. He still has to check his blood sugar 6-10 times a day and needs insulin everytime he eats.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects our family and Justin on a daily basis along with 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.
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 and improve the life for Justin and all of the other children with Type 1 Diabetes.
