Hello! This year, I'll be taking part again 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. Our Nashville walk is on September 24 at Bicentennial Park.
As most of you know, our son, Eric, has been dealing with Type 1 diabetes for 12 years. We are still very hopeful that in our lifetime and at least within his lifetime, a cure will be found, but to make that happen, we need to raise as much money as possible for research that is getting closer and closer to a cure.
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! I know I appreciate your support as does Eric.
