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.† As many of you may or may not know, diabetes has touched our family again this year.† My grandfather and 2 uncles had diabetes and last October, our son Henry was diagnosed at age 9.† While he is coping very well with our new "normal" we would love to find a cure for him.† As a family we have enrolled in a research study to help find a cure.† With God and researchers help, in my heart†I truly feel that can be accomplished
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!† Please give generously your prayers to our fight for a cure.† If you would like to join me on May 7th I would love to share the morning with you.† If you would like to donate to the cause, I would be ever so grateful!
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
