Charity of the Month for August 2012 - Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Every day, nearly forty children are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in the US. Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood. Without constant administration of insulin, the T1D can eventually be fatal.Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation works hard on research trying to find a cure and to improve the lives of those affected by type 1 (juvenile) diabetes. They work hard to accelerate the progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing the disease. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners who share this goal. Each year I try to do my part by participating in the Walk to Cure Diabetes. I am thrilled that EatSmart is giving me another opportunity to help in some small way. For more information about JDRF and to learn what you can do to help, please visit their website http://www.jdrf.org/. And thank you again to EatSmart Products for the opportunity to help a worthy cause. About Maria: Hi! My name is Maria from Huff and Buff!
