Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes.
My daughter Cheyanne, is now 12 years old and has been living with Type 1 Diabetes since she was 8. Since then she has endured nearly 15,000 finger pricks, thousands of shots, and hundreds of site changes for her insulin pump! The good news is that thanks to the pump Cheyanne, can and does enjoy many of the same activities that she would if she did not have the disease. And it is only because of the money raised every year by JDRF that things like the pump are becoming available to Cheyanne and all the others with this life threatening condition.
So I am asking that, even with this economy, that you consider donating to this cause. I know first hand that this is and organiztion that is making a real difference in peoples lives.
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!
