Walk to Cure Juvenile Diabetes!

Megan Barringer, now 20 was diagnosed at the age of 12 with juvenile type 1 diabetes. Megan has to constantly check her blood sugar levels by pricking her fingers several times a day and requires insulin shots at every meal and also at bedtime. If Megan does not take care of herself now she can have many life threatening complications later in life such as: heart disease, kidney disease, or blindness. These are just a few of the many issues Megan faces with type 1 diabetes.

Megan‘s family has made it their mission to do everything possible to help find a cure for this deadly disease. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) helps to accelerate diabetes research and is dedicated to finding a cure. Over 80% of every dollar spent goes directly to research and education about research. Since 1970, JDRF has provided more than $900 million to diabetes research worldwide.

On Saturday, April 18, 2009, Megan‘s family will be walking in JDRF‘s Walk to Cure Diabetes in Charlotte, NC as Megan‘s Crew. Please help them make a difference for Megan and the millions of other children and adults living with diabetes. There are a couple of ways to contribute:

    You can send a tax deductible contribution of any amount (cash or check), made payable to JDRF to their home address. Please indicate ”Megan‘s Crew“ in the check memo. The address is Stephen Barringer, 302 Oakwood St, Stanfield, NC 28163.
    You can contribute via the internet. Go to www.jdrf.org, click on the green sneaker, and then donate to our family by searching for Stephen or Erika Barringer and North Carolina under the heading ”Support a Walker“. Your online donation can be made by credit card and is also tax deductible.

Most of us probably know someone who has type 1 diabetes. Please think how much this would mean to them if by your help, JDRF was able to find a cure for this deadly disease. Every dollar raised will help bring us one step closer to a cure for Megan and all the others with juvenile diabetes.

Thank you in advance for your support and your generous contribution.
