Hello family and friends! Once again this year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, as part of our family walk team, Maxine's Diabetes DeFEETers. Over the past 16 years, our family team has raised over $50,000 for JDRF. This year we will try and add to that total by raising $7,500 more for the 2012 Walk.
My husband Andy and my father Peter were both diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in their teenage years. It is a difficult disease to live with requiring daily injections, constant blood sugar monitoring and the risk of severe health complications including heart disease, stroke, blindness and amputation.
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!
