Hello! As many of you know, my husband Jack was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 9. He has managed this disease through diligently monitoring his blood sugar levels, and watching his diet, exercise and stress levels. A change to any of these factors can wreak havoc on his blood sugar levels and his physical and mental health. A cure for this life altering disease is definitely needed.
This year, we will 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.
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!
