"I am a diabetic"equates to "I equal diabetes." I am not defined by diabetes. I do, however, have diabetes and this statement sucks.
I wish I didn't have to check my blood 6-8 times a day. I wish I didn't have to be connected to my insulin pump 24/7.
But wishing doesn't do any good. I still wake up everyday with this disease. Walking in this walk won't make my morning realization any different, at least not this day. But some day soon, it might.
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!
