Hello! Again 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.
My daughter Sara was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in January 2007. She will be insulin dependent the rest of her life until a cure is found. In the past 5 years she has endured thousands of finger pricks and insulin shots. She has to live with this terrible diseaase 24/7/365.
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.
As a family we are committed to do everything we can to help with finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes. We have formed a family walk team "Sara's Supporters" and will walk together on Sunday, September 23, 2012 in Spokane, WA to raise money for JDRF.
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!
