Hello! For the 6th year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with Caroline and 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. Caroline was diagnosed at just 8 months old. Through all the challenges over the years, the hospital stays, monitoring and injections, she has managed to strive and be one of the strongest most caring kids I know. While there is nothing you can do to prevent T1D, I can only hope that one day caroline will be able to get rid of it! She has been a true blessing in my life.
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!
