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. As many of you know Brianna was diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes on March 5, 2009. Brianna is able to lead a normal, healthy, active lifestyle with the help of daily doses of insulin. Diabetes does not run in either side of the family, Doctors cannot explain the "why" she was "the chosen one", but we are commited to helping JDRF find the answer and a cure.
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!
Our team goal is to raise $2500.00 and we are hoping you can partake in this effort by either walking with us and/or making a contribution.
Hope to see you there!
Brianna & Family
