Diabetes Awareness

Diabetes is a disease that affects almost every part of one’s body.  This condition is caused by excess glucose in one’s blood.  As discussed in my group’s presentation, there is currently no cure for diabetes.  The disease can only be managed and for some who have severe diabetes it is nearly impossible to manage.  Our group chose to focus specifically on Type 1 diabetes and chose the JDRF’s Walk to Cure Diabetes as our service project.  I was unfortunately ill and unable to attend, but I heard it was a great success!  The organization’s goal is to raise 1.5 million dollars by June 30th, 2013.  We can all help them by donating to a walker on their website  (http://www2.jdrf.org/site/PageServer?pagename=walk_homepage).  Now is the time to help those suffering from diabetes!
