Hello friends & family! This year, we will again 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. As most of you know, our daughter, Jamie, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in July of 2008. As much as she has been blessed with the ability to keep it under control most of the time, it would be wonderful for a young girl like her to not have to worry about her blood sugar going high and making her sick or so low that she could pass out or have a seizure. She would be able to eat what she wants without counting her carbs. No more needles! No more pricking her finger 5 times a day!
There is some good news, though. 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? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
