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!
