My 13-year old sister, Amanda, has Type 1 Diabetes. She was diagnosed with this disease when she was only 3 years old. She has had to live with this for 10 years now!
On Sunday, October 6th, I am walking with Team Amanda in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes at Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway at 9 AM to show my sister how much I love her and want to help find a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
Amanda is a great big sister! Diabetes is such a big part of her life. She must test her blood sugar so many times everyday even during practices and games. My mom has to even test her when she is sleeping! It is really tough for her to change her set that she inserts in her body every few days so that insulin goes from her insulin pump into her body. She is so brave! I want to help find a cure for diabetes so my sister does not have to test her blood sugar, not be able to eat certain foods, and to be free from her insulin pump.
Please help me by joining our walk team, Team Amanda. Even if you cannot walk with us, please show your support by making a donation by clicking on the link below, or you can write a check made out to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and mail to me at 2 Alyssa Lane, Purchase, NY 10577 (put "Team Amanda" in the memo line). Please forward my letter or your own letter asking family and friends to support you if you walk with Team Amanda. You can even raise money by using facebook. Every dollar brings us one step closer to finding a cure for Amanda.
Thanks for your help.
