Howdy! This year, I will be again 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.
Devon was just 5 years old when our family was forever changed by T1D. Devon is T1D "COWGIRL" strong! She endures at least 5 shots of insulin a day, testing her blood sugar 5-10 a day, counting carbs and portions whenever she eats or drinks. As a family, We help Devon face life with T1D head on!!!!
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!
