This October, our family and friends will be walking in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes and we hope you will join us!
As you know, we now have a very personal connection with this disease that affects millions of children and adults. Our youngest son, Tyler, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on January 18th, 2012, the day of his 5th birthday.
When he turned 5, he had dreams of being like his hero, Yoda. But now Tyler has a new mission.
You see, he recently found a $5 laying around the house and informed us to "please just give it to the doctors so that they can find a cure for diabetes and maybe someday I can have an artificial pancreas or a pancreas transplant too." Wow.
So we are now taking steps to help Tyler on his new mission, and help JDRF achieve its goal of improving the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D!
By joining our Walk Team and/or making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.
We continue to be motivated by the courage and perseverance of those facing the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes - they are the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, to achieve more. We challenge ourselves to make a real difference in the lives of those with T1D.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by supporting Tyler's Tornadoes? All we need you to do is click on the button you choose above, make a donation, and begin fundraising. It is that simple.
Thank you so much for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on Walk day!
We have designed brand new Tyler's Tornadoes t-shirts so our 2012 Rookie Team of the Year can look sharp again this October -- and are THRILLED to share that Landers Premier Flooring has once again offered to cover the cost of the shirts so 100% of all donations can go directly to JDRF! Thank you, Stephanie and John!
Here's a preview of the shirt design:
