JDRF. Walk to Cure Diabetes. Help Support the Cause.

We've all heard the news. Juvenile diabetes is on the rise in this country. Well here's your chance to make a difference. On October 4th, over one and half million people across the country will be walking in JDRF's Walk to a Cure Diabetes to help make a diffrence. Time Magazine calls JDRF as "One of the nations most forceful disease advocacy groups" The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is exactly that and this year, like every year, a close friend of mine will be walking with her friends and family in Walnut Creek, CA.
I'm writing this blog to do my part in supporting and promoting the cause and asking you if you cannot be part of the walk, you can support her by making a donation on her page. I do realize that times are tough for all us. Alot of people have lost their jobs and homes. But the good news is that there is no minimum amount to donate and your donation is Tax Deductable. JDRF and my friend will be doing the hard part. All you have to do is support them by clicking here to make a donation. Thank you.

Hi,

7.9% of the United States population is suffering from a form of Diabetes. That is over 23 million people! Now, more than ever, it is important for organizations such as yourself. We here, at Disease.com (a site dedicated towards disease and their treatments), believe in the work you do and would like to coincide for the fight against diabetes. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Separately, we can make advancements, but together we can find a cure.
If you need more information please email me back with the subject line as your URL.

Thank You,
