I am raising money for PADRE in honor of my now 14 year-old daughter Annalise who was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes when she was 4. My father, Joseph, died of complications from Type I Diabetes when he was just 37 years old. You can probably imagine the fear at the time of diagnosis. Fortunately, with research and advances the disease has become MUCH more manageable, although it is still a chronic disease with NO CURE! Each year I run a marathon to raise money for PADRE -- Pedatric Adolescent Diabetes Research Education, based in Orange County, CA which is truly a godsend for families living with the disease. Unfortunately not this year. I broke my ankle the first week of January, had surgery to repair it with plates, screws, pins, and wire :( and find myself still non-weight bearing. I am therefore using alternative avenues to raise the money. Please help me help them educate newly diagnosed families as well as continue to help fund research to find a cure with even a small donation! Skip Starbucks today or that one new item from Lu La Roe to make an honest impact on a child with a chronic disease! No one should be left to figure it out for themselves!!
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for anything you can doante!
