Hello! This year, I'll be 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.
Our son William Neel has type one diabetes. He was diagnosed at four years old and is now nine. William is in forth grade and loves to play tackle football. Every year since his diagnosis we participate in the Austin JDRF walked cure type one diabetes. William checks is blood glucose levels as much at 15 to 20 times a day buy poking his finger. We support William daily with complications from type one diabetes. This will be our fifth year. JDRF is the leading researcher and developer of medical devices such as insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors. Both devices used by William directly positively impact the longevity and quality of Williams life. He is fighting for a cure; Please support William and join us on walk day!
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!
from our family to yours :
We sincerely thank you!
