This goofy kid calls himself the "sexy diabetic"...not that I'd argue the point, since he's beefed up quite a bit in the past year and is a total chick magnet:
Okay, so that's really a duckling, but his personality attracts all sorts of lovely creatures :)
ANYHOO, we are nearing our annual JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes and I'm asking for your help. Our goal is $1,000 and we haven't raised one red cent! (I could make excuses, but they wouldn't be any good...)
Living with diabetes sucks (pardon the French). Kayson spent a few days in Primary Children's hospital in June getting "re-trained" because his blood sugars have been too high, too long. It scares me, but he's a teenager and learning to assert his independence, which sometimes translates to "I don't want to deal with this anymore". Unfortunately, that's not an option...YET. We are committed to finding a cure and have been active with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for almost as long as Kayson has had Diabetes (7 years). But we can't do it alone.
You don't need to donate $100 (but you certainly could if you want to!), but if you have an extra $10, we could put it to good use: 90% of your donation goes DIRECTLY to research to find a cure for this disease.
To make it even easier, you can donate online! CLICK HERE to make a difference in Kayson's life and every child who suffers from Juvenile Diabetes.
Our family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts...or in Kayson's case, the bottom of his pancreas!
