Hello! Again 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.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. In 1996 while he was away at college, this disease took the life of my childhood friend, Frank, and every year I do this walk in his honor so that other people don't have to go through the experience of losing a friend at such a young age. Visit my page to see my favorite picture of me with Frank when I was MUCH younger. Frank was famous for showing up with crazy ideas about fun, spur-of-the-moment things to do -- maybe he knew his time was short.
Although we all lost Frank much too soon, there is some good news. 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? Every dollar truly does help. Together, we can make the cure a reality!
Thank you for your support.
