My Daughter Has Diabetes. Need Your Help!

Hi all,
I have been a part of this online community for a few years now. I have met a few of you and have helped out countless Rover owners. My family needs a bit of help. Back in March, my 14 year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She takes 4 to 8 shots a day of insulin so her body can break down and use carbs. She is putting together a team for a walk-a-thon trying to raise money for a cure. I'm not one to ask for help but here I go. Below is a link to her JDRF site, collecting donations for the 2006 Walk For The Cure. If you can help her out it would mean the world to her and every other kid & adult that has to live with diabetes.

P.S. Chris Von C....... I hope this is O.K. by you to post. If not, remove it, I don't want to make any problems.

Dave,

Sounds like a worthy cause if I ever heard one. I hope everyone can help out.

Best of luck to you and your daughter,

Greg

The post is cool Dave. You've been an active member for a number of years here and I hope the community can help out just as they did for the Katrina effort.

Follow-up Post:

For everybody that has donated so far, thank you so much. Scottsdale LR on McDowell donated $500 to pay for our team's t-shirts. If you live here in the valley, throw Josh some business. Again thank you all. Every bit helps!!!!!

Can't make a donation through the link above since I am from outside of the US. Is there another way?

You guys are the greatest! I can't thank you enough. The walk is on November 4th and my daughter raised her goal to $4000. Diabetes is a horrible disease to live with and money for research is the only thing that will find a cure. 1 in 12 Americans will develop diabetes in their lifetime. 1 in 5 Hispanics living in America will develop diabetes. Thanks again and keep my daughter Sarah in your thoughts and prayers. If you have not donated yet, you have till the 4th of November. Thanks again, you all brought a tear to my eye today.

Hi all,
Just to keep you updated on our progress. The LR dealer never gave us a nickle but the D-90 forum members has been our biggest donors! With money from our neighbors and the raffle at work we should get to our $4000 goal. For those of you who gave, thank you all. For those who haven't yet (hint, hint), there is still time. For those who will be in the Phoenix area that weekend, please join us at the walk.........
