Hello! This year, my family will once again be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with a 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. People with type 1 will not grow out of it, it is not caused by obesity or lifestyle issues, and it can be deadly.
My Anna has type 1. There is never a break from the disease. Every single day, multiple times per day, she must deal with it, pricking fingers to test her blood sugar, counting carbs and administering insulin.
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!
