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.
As of November 2010, my pancreas stopped working and I was diagnosed with Type 1 juvenile diabetes during a three day stay at Brenner's Children Hospital. Now I'm a teenager and live everyday constantly managing my blood sugars and my health. I have an insulin pump, and while it has been a great help, it is no cure!
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.
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!
Parker and her Posse!
