Alyssa's Journey with Type 1 Diabetes

An outlet, a diary of sorts, a place for thoughts, a place to connect,
an expression of feelings about Juvenile Diabetes......

It's time to gear up for walking season!!

Yesterday I re-upped for JDRF's walk to a cure on Oct. 6th in Elon, NC.  This year our team name will be Alyssa's Army!  I'm so excited about all the response we have already gotten!!  Research is so important, not only for a cure, but to also make the lives of people living with diabetes a little bit easier.  Remember, without research there would not be life saving insulin or meters or pumps...the list goes on and on!  It's very likely that each of us has been touched in some way by this disease; so, each one of us has a reason to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research #1 reason is Alyssa!

I just wanted to add that Advanced Auto, Ford Motor Co., Marshall's and Walgreen's are all huge supporters of JDRF.  (I am not recieving any compensation ;)  So the next time you have a choice of where to shop, support companies that support JDRF!!
