Welcome to My Personal Page

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.

Our granddaughter, Paige Gayle, contracted juvenile diabetes in 1999, when she was seven, and this horrendous event changed our lives. We now know the care, worry, and emotional rollercoaster that accompanies the onset of JD, not only for the child, but for the entire family. Paige is now a college student, and the days of many, many daily shots and careful monitoring of her diet are hopefully behind us. But we still worry.

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!
