Team Braden





We will turn Type One into Type None

Dear Family & Friends,

 On May 3rd ~Team Braden~ will be supporting the JDRF walk!! JDRF is such a worthy cause and very close to our hearts. On March 11, 2011 Braden was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. That day was such a life changer and to say the least an emotional rollercoaster. Braden since day 1 remained a very positive, happy little boy, daily he amazes us with his courage and strength. Life for Braden now consist of checking his blood sugar 4-7 times daily, 3 insulin shots daily ( that?s 1,095 shot?s a year), being on a certain eating schedule, counting carbs before he eats anything and becoming a master at numbers!

Team Braden joined the (2011) walk for the first time just weeks after getting the diagnosis and it was amazing!! We want to always exceed our goal each year and help find a cure, because its not if they find a cure it?s when and we want to be a part of that so we can all live in a ~diabetes free world!~

 JDRF is the #1 non-profit funder of diabetes research worldwide. We would like you to take part and help our team!

 *You can join our team, which consist of family and friends who collect pledges and walk with us.

 *You can donate on line to our team page at and search for our team name ?Team Braden? or give our team a tax-deductible contribution in any amount, made payable to JDRF. We will deliver any donations the morning of the walk.

 Thank you for helping ~Team Braden~ to meet our goal and for everyone?s support. We would be honored to see you at the walk on April 27th at 10 a.m. on the Drury campus!
