My whole life I have watched my sister live with the complications and struggles of type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. A life with T1D is filled with constant blood sugar checks, shots, infections and the scares of highs and lows. I have always admired her strength and courage while battling this disease, but her strength and courage were put to the ultimate test this past 4th of July when her youngest son Davis was diagnosed with T1D.
My heart just broke as I heard the news, "Davis is in the hospital and has been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes." My heart breaks for him, knowing the challenges he will face. My heart breaks for my sister. She now has to watch her 5 year old battle all of the things that she had to endure. And my heart breaks that to date there is no cure!
And that is why I support JDRF! Because I know that they are dedicated to using more than 80 percent of the expenditures to directly support research and research-related education! And I know that JDRF will not stop until they have found a cure for my sister, for my precious Davis, and the millions of others affected by T1D.
This October the 26th, Troy, Reed and I will be walking with JDRF to honor and support my sister Beth, my nephew Davis and the goal of finding a cure! Please join me in supporting a wonderful cause by making a donation today!
Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
Annie, Troy and Reed
