In April of 2011, a little 3 year old boy named Parker was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. That little guy is now 5 and a half years old and uses an insulin pump. This makes his life a LITTLE easier but still not as carefree as many of his friends.
I am walking in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes because I feel helpless for any other way to lend a helping hand.
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 in Parker's lifetime!!!
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
