Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
This year, I’ll be taking part in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with my company, McAlister Properties LLC and a half-million others nationwide. JDRF is the leading global organization focused on research for T1D.
This is personally important to me since I was just recently diagnosed with diabetes.
I’m asking you to help support my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will help make a difference in the lives of people with T1D.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. The disease can strike in childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, and lasts a lifetime. Just to survive, people with T1D must take multiple injections of insulin daily or continually infuse insulin through a pump. Taking insulin does not cure any type of diabetes, nor does it prevent the possibility of the disease’s devastating effects: kidney failure, blindness, nerve damage, amputation, heart attack, stroke, and pregnancy complications.
It is faster and easier than ever to donate to JDRF. Simply visit my personal webpage to donate online. See link below. If you prefer, you can mail your gift check to me at the address listed below. Please make the check out to JDRF and include my name in the “Memo” section.
Any amount, great or small, helps JDRF get closer to its goal to accelerate progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. More than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support T1D research or research-related education. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.
