I'm writing to ask for your support in a very special cause.
This year, I'll be taking part in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with a half-million others nationwide. Our goal: to raise $89 million to fund research for better treatments and a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications.
I have been type 1 diabetic for 28 years and have been lucky to not have any complications. This year i have had the first signs of neuropathy. I am on the insulin pump with a continuous glucose monitor built into the pump. I work hard at taking care of my diabetes. Diabetes is a 24/7 disease, I am always thinking about it, checking my blood sugar and working hard to keep the complications minimal. And with your donations we will be closer to finding a cure.
I am asking you to help support my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will help make a difference in the lives of people with type 1 diabetes.
Any amount, great or small, helps JDRF get closer to its goal of finding better treatments and a cure for type 1 diabetes. I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
