My husband, Derek, has type 1 diabetes (T1D). He was diagnosed before he turned 2. His brother has T1D too. Their dad was a T1D too, and died of complications. So did their uncle.
I'm walking for them! I'm walking for every person who is diagnosed with T1D hoping they'll find a cure that's cheaper and better than an insulin pen! I'm walking with JDRF, because they deliver!
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!
