Join Team Juliana and help us Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes!

We're sorry. You must have JavaScript enabled and version 9.0.0 or higher of the Flash player installed to view this video.

On May 18th, our family will be walking and running in the 32nd Annual Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes, benefitting JDRF.

As you may know, our 9 1/2 year old granddaughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) almost six years ago. As a result, Juliana must test her blood sugar levels ten to twelve times a day, closely monitor her diet, and wear an insulin pump on her body.  And this will continue every day, every year for the rest of her life unless a cure is found.

If managed consistently well, Juliana will be able to delay and hopefully avoid the more difficult potential effects of this disease later in her life, including damage to the nerves, kidneys, eyes and more.

Please watch this short video to see Juliana talk about her life managing T1D and hear why finding a cure is so important to her:

As you can imagine, this has forever changed the lives of our son Greg, his wife Elisa, their daughter Juliana and her siblings Lucy and Charlie. To encourage and support Juliana, they formed TEAM JULIANA to do two things: 1)raise money to support the research required to cure, treat and prevent T1D, and 2) provide Juliana with support and let her know that she is not alone with this disease.

This will be Juliana's 6th year at Beat the Bridge--since 2009 TEAM JULIANA has raised over $85,000 thanks to the kindness and generosity of so many.  This year the team goal is $20,000 more. Rose Marie and I hope to raise $3000 towards this year's goal.

Will you help us reach that goal with a donation to JDRF and TEAM JULIANA? Any amount is welcome.   To make a donation just click on the box (top left) that says DONATE.

We greatly appreciate your consideration and support of this worthy cause. If you have any questions or need any additional  information, please don't hesitate to contact us. Again, thank you from all of us for your generous support of Juliana.

Very truly yours,

Joseph and Rose Marie Graceffo
