Hello! This is the fifth year for our family walk team to 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, but as those children get older they will still have diabetes with a high chance of having one if not many of the sevearl complications this disease can come along with.
I have been diabetic for twenty-two years as of June 2013, and was diagnosed with a complication of diabetes in May of 2011. As you might can imagine, it was extremely upsetting to find out that even though my diabetes has been in great control over the majority of the years, it is due to the length of time my body has fought this disease that caused the complication. As you can see insulin is not a cure. That is why searching for a cure is so extremely important.
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!
Thank you for your support,
