We are counting down our trip to Madison for the JDRF walk. We walk in support of my nephew, Jack Pierce Jacobsen. Jack lives with Type 1 Diabetes, it's a 24 hour, 7 days a week kind of deal. When type 1 kids get a cold, it's a huge deal; when type 1 kids run too hard on a hot day; it's a huge deal, when type 1 kids spend the day on the couch; it's a huge deal. I think you get the picture, it's a lot to manage - especially when you're a kid.
So, Bob, Grace, Harriet & I will walk again with HOPE in our hearts that one day there will be a cure for diabetes. We walk to honor Jack and other kids just like him who have had to grow up a little too quickly.
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!
Thanks for giving HOPE to so many children!
Julie, Bob, Grace & Harriet
