THE STORY:

JDRF MINNDAKOTAS will again have a team for the 

MEDTRONIC TWIN CITIES MARATHON 

Dear Family and Friends,

I'm writing to you to ask for your support for a very special cause.

About eight years ago, I wouldn't have been able to tell you what diabetes was, let alone that there are two different forms of it. To my knowledge, diabetes was some sort of disease that only older or obese people suffered from. I really never understood the MAGNITUDE of it. Well, that all changed when my niece Anna was diagnosed with juvenile (type 1) diabetes in March of 2002.

Anna is 12 years old and has been a Type 1 diabetic for 8 ½ years.  She currently uses an insulin pump to deliver her insulin and needs to test her blood sugars 6 – 10 times per day.  Though she controls her diabetes quite well, it often gets in the way of her ‘normal’ 12 year old life.  Having to leave class to test because she is feeling low or testing several times before a volleyball match to try and get her blood sugars just right and still going low and having to miss part of a game until her blood sugars climb back up to an acceptable range are frustrating realities for her.  Diabetes Camp is one of the highlights of Anna’s year.  It is the one time when she is just like all of the other kids.  The insulin Anna takes is not a cure for her diabetes, but merely life support until a cure is found.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) – a non-profit organization dedicated solely to raising funds to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. Since their founding in 1970, JDRF has raised over $1 billion for diabetes research.

Thanks for your support of JDRF,

Kent Harfmann
