Today is a very special day…. Today is the walk to cure Juvenile Diabetes! My best friends little girl was diagnosed 6 years ago at the age of 5 with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. My family along with my best friend and her family (and many many others) have supported the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) ever since. We walk to raise money for research, we walk to raise awareness of Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes, but most of all we walk to show our support. Support for my best friend because I know that being a parent of a child with Type 1 Diabetes is not an easy task. Never ending worries of highs and lows, sleepless nights testing blood sugar levels. Support for her precious daughter who lives with this life threatening disease and support to all of the children and their families who are battling this disease…….My heart is so emotionally tied to this cause! Rain or shine we will be walking this morning (It’s raining now). So……..
Let the walking begin!!!
