Hey y'all - here's the deal: Type-1 is tough. It's been tough for the last two years that our little guy has LIVED with T1D.
But it doesn't mean the end of living (unless you stop treating it every day). That being stated, we DO treat it every minute of every day and we're on our way to kicking its tail. T1D is tough but Duncan is tougher. And we don't act like it sucks because, well, you know, that's no kind of way to live!
If you think you've seen passion & commitment, just wait until you come out for the Annual Walk on Sept 28th in Nashville (or locally, wherever you may be). You'll be inspired to simply be a better person when you see all those kids with smiles on their faces...and they smile even knowing they'll have to deal with this disease for a lifetime. They're genuinely proud to be able to cope & live normal lives despite the struggle! (reminder that donations work even if you can't make the walk)
Additionally, I'm almost done with my new album, which I'll give away for free with a suggested donation to JDRF. Donate now & know that when you download a pirated copy off the interwebs, you'll be doing so guilt-free!
Duncan is so proud to be Type-1 and he's doing so well with his daily treatments (4 shots & 6 finger pricks EACH DAY)...let's show him that he's not alone in this fight!
Some info in case you don't know:
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you. AWESOME STAT: JDRF uses ~80%+ of all donations to fund R&D. Anytime you like, we can nerd out chatting about some cool stuff they’ve done with that money. Put that in your good-cause hip pocket!
Please support us and donate to our Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
Duncan & his all his T1D buddies thank you! We thank you! Generous & kind, you are! (not sure why I’m typing like Yoda)
QUESTION: CAN WE RAISE $1,000 BEFORE SEPT 28TH??? If we all just give a few bucks, we'll be there in no time. So pick one day to drive right past that Starbucks, get you some cheap gas station coffee, and put that extra two bucks in the kitty. OR give whatever you're comfortable giving (not to exceed one million dolllars). Remember, every dollar counts! (said in my best fundraising voice)
