Blog to Fight Diabetes - contest, check it OUT!

Sunday, August 24, 2008

As many of you know, Sophia's best pal Tyler who is 6, has Type 1 Diabetes. ( or as Soph used to say, "the dinabeanies"). One woman over at Soy is the new Black recently found out her daughter is also a Diabetic. Check out her blog to fight diabetes and win some fabulous prizes as well here.

  • She writes "My four-year-old daughter was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. This is a chronic condition that she unfortunately will deal with for the rest of her life. For more information about Type 1 Diabetes, visit the American Diabetic Association and the Juvenvile Diabetes Research Foundation International.Though this is a lifelong chronic condition, researchers are making great strides in both treatments and improving the lives of those with Type 1 diabetes. Fundraising efforts, such as the Step Out Walk to Fight Diabetes, can raise substantial funds and make real changes in the lives of children and adults who struggle every day. Diabetes can be life threatening, but it doesn't have to be.Please show your support and help fund research by making a donation on behalf of my Step Out Walk to Fight Diabetes campaign. Every single dollar adds up. Contributions can be made securely through ChipIn. 100% of your donation goes toward the Step Out Walk charity event.

So won't you check it out for Tyler and this little girl and thousands of kids all over the world, so we can help put an end to Juvenile Diabetes forever?

Thanks for writing about my contest and fundraiser.

We're wearing super hero capes for our walk! My daughter wears her Little Capers shirt almost daily, so I am going to make us grown ups capes to wear with her. She's our hero.
