Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!

Our family is honored to be participating in the JDRF (juvenile diabetes research foundation) Walk to Cure Diabetes this year. The walk will be held on May 11th in Green Bay. We have teamed up with some awesome people and great friends and joined the team Steppin for Spence.

Our good friend Spencer Faulkes was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on New Years Day when he was just 7 years old and has been living with this disease for the past 4 years. Every day, several times a day he needs to check his blood sugar and correct his levels with insulin. He needs to watch what he eats and adjust his levels based on whatever food he has. Spencer is so much fun to be around! He lives life to the fullest and is always happy! He loves to play football and baseball and just be a kid!

It is our wish that Spencer (and others with diabetes) do not have to live like this! Please help us to raise money for a cure! Zhenya and Marlee have set a goal and would like to raise $100! They have each said they will empty their own piggy banks to help! We can?t wait to walk with Spencer and his family!

Would you PLEASE help us by donating! Any amount is greatly appreciated!

Thank you! Gracias! Danke! Merci! Spasiba!
