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.
Hayden Griffin, our 7 year old grandson, was diagnosed 3 years ago with this horrible disease. It is a constant struggle to keep his blood sugar at the correct level and it is difficult for him to understand why other children his age can eat what they want and his diet is so restricted!
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!
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
Team Member, Hayden's Heroes
