Anyone who knows me knows that I'm not the type of person to ask for help. I hate to do it.
But, there are some things that we can't do alone, and I'm reaching out in an effort to get some help.
There are two fundraising walks coming up, and I am now officially registered for both of them. These walks help to raise awareness and much-needed money for research into treatments and cures. I have friends and family members who have been affected by both of these diseases.
The first one is The JDRF Walk To Cure Diabetes. This walk is being held in Wichita on May 28, and the kids and I will be walking in it for the first time. Diabetes has affected so many of my friends and family - I can't even begin to list everyone, so this is very important to me. If you would like to make a donation, you can doing that by going to THIS PAGE - once you're there, you can either donate in my name, or if you click on "View My Team Page" you can donate to one of the kids. Either way works for me!
THIS PAGE to do so. Because CF is genetic, there is a very real chance that my kids could be carriers, and could pass the recessive gene on to the next generation - knowing that a cure has been found would ease my mind so much!
I understand that many people can not afford to make a financial donation. But, we all have the power to spread the word. Share this post on your facebook walls, email it to friends and family, post it on twitter - the more people who see it, the more chances we have to raise enough money to find cures for these diseases. So please, if you can't do anything else, just share this post!
Thank you so much!
