Come join Team Taylor, myself and the staff of MicroMetl Corporation (Sparks, NV) in the walk to cure Juvenile Diabetes on October 14, 2012 at University of Nevada, Reno. MicroMetl is a proud sponsor of JDRF and the Walk to Cure Diabetes. In addition to our sponsorship, MicroMetl has set a goal to raise $15,000, and I am hoping you will join us by making a tax-deductible corporate contribution to JDRF.
My 13-year-old daughter Taylor has diabetes. She was diagnosed at 15 months old. Taylorwill be insulin-dependent for life: she will not outgrow juvenile diabetes. We are in a constant struggle to manage blood-sugar levels with 8 to 10 daily finger pricks to test blood, give correct insulin and careful monitoring of exercise and food intake. In my house starbursts are not candies, they are medicine to cure low blood sugar, so Taylor does not lose consciousness or have a seizure. As she grows older, we will have to worry about the many complications of diabetes like kidney failure, blindness and heart disease. There are 26 Million Americans who suffer from this debilitating and chronic disease most of them children like Taylor. In 1982 there were only 5 million Americans with this disease!! Insulin is not a cure ? it only allows Taylor to stay alive! Families of children with diabetes NEVER get a day off.
Please help JDRF find a cure to help Taylor, and other children from the effects of diabetes and its complications.
Thanks in part to JDRF, researchers feel that a cure IS in sight. Much of the groundbreaking research conducted, has been funded by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. In fact, JDRF is the largest private funder of diabetes research in the world. Out of every dollar JDRF raises, at least 85 cents is channeled directly into diabetes research and education projects. This is an impressive percentage of your dollar going to research.
I sincerely hope that you will join me and help us reach our ultimate goal ? A WORLD WITHOUT DIABETES. Thank you for your time and consideration.
