It's that time of year again! Jayla and I will be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes on Saturday October 4, 2014, 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. One of them children is my very own daughter, Jayla Dorsey. She was diagnosed at the young age of 2 years old and has endured countless finger pricks and insulin injections.
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. Jayla has been braving the last 6 years without fear but she is fighting along side others to find the cure within her lifetime. She is my hero!
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 and in Jayla's lifetime. No donation is too small and all things are made possible through God!
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
