Walk time is upon us again this year and fast approaching on Sunday October 20th, 2013. This will be our 7th year walking as my oldest daughter - Emily was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in June of 2006.
Since this time, all of us in our family has learned so much information about diabetes such as counting carbs with each meal, how to administer a shot of insulin, what a bolus is, or how to put on a site or start a new sensor, along with many other things. Emily has done quite well living with her disease and continues to get more self sufficient with her care each day. We are all so proud of her. Sometimes I don't know how she does it with all those needles- she is very brave.
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!
