My personal goal is $250 and my team goal is $8,000… Please help us raise it – Just follow the link to donate!!! http://www2.jdrf.org/site/TR?team_id=141095&pg=team&fr_id=3280

How does JDRF help? JDRF is committed to finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes and assisting families with children who do have it. As a not-for-profit organization, they are able to dedicate 82% of all funds to research and education – 82 cents per dollar - that’s HUGE!

What is Type 1 Diabetes? Type 1 is an autoimmune disease – basically the body’s immune system attacks and kills insulin-producing cells. Unlike Type 2 diabetes which can be reversed, Type 1 diabetes thus far is irreversible, resulting in regular injections of insulin.

Who does Type 1 diabetes target most? – Babies, Children, and Adolescents More than 3,000,000 Americans have Type 1 Diabetes – that’s a lot of zeros, huh? Even worse, each year more than 15,000 children are diagnosed – meaning each day 40 children are told they will have to stick themselves with a needle to survive – ouch!
