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.
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!

A few years ago, a good friend's son, Bryce, was diagnosed with type I diabetes. It was devastating to Bryce and his family, but they have learned how to deal with it. Bryce is quite a guy, he hasn't let it bring him down, and is still as good natured as ever. I am walking to support him and his family in their fight against this disease. Even in this rotten economy, if you could spare a few dollars to help, you could make a difference. They are making advances against this disease all the time, and hopefully in Bryce's lifetime, there will be a cure.
Your donations will be added to Bryce's team..Bryce's Bunch
