Hello! As most of you are aware, our darling 13 year old son Reiss, was diagnosed in 2009 with Type 1 Diabetes. This year, we'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 join us for the walk or give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
This year all donations are dedicated to the life of my dad, Bill Bruckel, who passed away July 17th. His grandkids were his greatest passion.
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).
