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. 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 some of you know, Frank was diagnosed with Type 1 when he was 7, Memorial Day weekend in 1980. A couple years later, his sister was also diagnosed. As I watch my husband struggle with this disease on a daily basis, I can only hope and pray for a cure. I watch him prick his finger multiple times a day, struggle with high and low swings of blood sugar and watch him give himself a shot 4 times a day. This is why our team is called No More Sticks.
I also hope and pray that Sydney is never diagnosed with his disease. Help us find a cure so no other children or adults have to deal with it either. Want to walk with us? Join the team and help us raise money to find a cure. Can't walk with us? That's ok too, please consider donating.
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!
