This year, Andy, Bailey and I will again 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. As many of you know Andy's brother is type 1 and we know better than we'd like the affect this disease has on individuals and their families.
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. We know in these difficult times it can be hard to find extra money for charitable donations and most of us are inundated with requests but won't you please consider giving to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
