More about this cause:
My niece, Courtney, was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when she was six years old. She is 17 now, but since there is no cure, every day along with 3 million other people in the U.S., she has to manage her diabetes on a daily basis by checking her blood sugar by pricking a finger multiple times a day and wearing an insulin pump among many other inconveniences. Additionally, 15,000 children and 15,000 adults are diagnosed every year. Through this fundraiser, together we can cure and prevent juvenile diabetes.
