Walk to Cure Diabetes

On Saturday, November 2nd, we are going to participate in the Walk to Cure Diabetes for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  It is a fundraiser to help support kids with diabetes and to advance treatment and find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. You can visit our JDRF Walk to the Cure Team Page  We are asking for for friends and families to help support us with whatever you can. You can either donate to our team or even join us for the walk! A small amount from a lot friends will add up quickly. I truly believe that Bradley will have a cure for his diabetes in his life time. 40 years ago Bradley would have not have had the same treatment he has today because of research. He would have expected to have serious complications such as blindness and amputations. But, thanks to advances in diabetes care he can live a full and healthy life. Before 1969, there was no way for a person with diabetes to test their blood sugar levels. Now we have blood glucose meters that are affordable and very accurate. In the 1980s and 1990s genetic engineers created new types of insulin that are identical to what is in your body. Without these advancements my son would have had a very different life and I am so thankful for these amazing advancements. Please help us support the #1 foundation that supports diabetes research and treatment.

Thanks for watching! Here is the link to our Team Page
