Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes in support of my niece Erica Casey who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in November 2009. Erica is an amazing young women and faces this disease with the same determination that she faces down her opponents on the soccer team. I can't take the shots for her or wear the pump, but I can help raise money and awareness to fight this critical illness.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
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!
