JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes 2010

It's that time of year when my family and I participate in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. My gorgeous 9 year old niece has now been living with diabetes for 5 1/2 years. She amazes me...she is so smart and sweet and knows how to control her diabetes, use her pump, and calm me down when I freak out about a high or a low and she can tell me exactly what I need to do to get her levels back on track.

It is time...time for a CURE! I shared this poem years ago...and I will reshare it here because I pray so desperately for a cure for precious lil Sierra and all the other children who have to deal with finger pricks and shots and eating when you don't feel like it, and lows that make your body hurt, and counting every carb that goes into their body, and having their insulin pump mistaken for a cell phone.

Please go here and donate as generously as you can. Any amount, big or small is greatly appreciated.

There is some great research bringing us closer to a cure...help support that research so we can give Sierra her cure...
