Hello! This year will be my 3rd year 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.
My son, Corran was diagnosed with Type 1 in August 2009. I can't believe its been 4 years already! Since then he has had his glucose levels checked a minimum of 5 times a day and also receives a minimum of 6 insulin shots a day. He will be switching to an insulin pump soon and starting Kindergarten in Aug 2013.
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!
Please, please prayfully consider donating. Any amount helps and is greatly appreciated! Donate to help find a cure for Corran and everyone with Type 1.
Thank you in advance,
Shauna & Corran Espey
