Hello! This year, I will again be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes. I walk to support my coworker and her son Henry. Henry was diagnosed in May of 2010 and their lives are forever changed. He's an amazing little guy. I also do this in honor of my uncle who dealt with a life of type 1 diabetes and whose life was cut too short because of it.
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.
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!
