Welcome to My Personal Page


I have been blessed to have a great group of family, friends, and colleagues walk with me now for TEN YEARS! Wow, you guys really have my back, don't you?  We sure have had a lot of fun with our Fall tradition to walk along the lakefront to help raise funds to cure diabetes while visiting together, pets included!  I can't thank you enough for your support - to those who walk alongside me and to many of you that pledge every year.  As much as I love walking w/you, one of these years I hope there will be no reason to walk and that's when we're going to replace this event with the biggest beach party ever!

Once again, this year, I'll 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.

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!
