I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Dear Family, Friends, and Supporters,
On July 15th 2011, at the age of 5, our daughter Morgan was diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. We will never forget that date and it will always be known as "T1 Diagnosis Day". It is a day that holds many emotions for Morgan and everyone that is touched by her beautiful spirit. Today Morgan is 8 years old, and in 2nd grade.
This will be our family's 3rd year taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
