The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is dedicated to finding the cause of, and cures for, type-1 diabetes– the insulin-dependent kind. Using insulin doesn’t cure diabetes, it just postpones the inevitable slow degeneration of major organs that eventually leads to death. That’s no good.
Our martial arts school is sponsoring a team, the Black Belt Brigade. As part of that team, our family has signed up to raise $500. That’s a lot, on one hand, but on the other, it’s a very small fraction of the $90 million that JDRF hopes to raise this year.
If you’re reading this, please consider donating online. $2, $5, $10, or more will definitely help. You can donate, or just check our family’s status, here. (and if not, that’s OK too… but Dad’s ghost may come haunt you. No, wait, that was just a joke…. maybe!)
