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!!!
