Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk- University of Nevada, Reno campus 2006- here is our team picture from last year.

Two of the woman in this photo have Juvenile Diabetes...
Without their medical bracelets, would you know who it was?

One of the gals just celebrated her 20th year
(3 shots a day x 20 years=21,900 pin pricks, plus some)
The other womand just had her first anniversary of being diagnosed, at age 27.

Juvenile Diabetes doesn't just affect children- this is a life long issue that can affect young and old, families and friends.

Please help us find a cure...

What a great cause! This weekend I went to the wedding of a woman of the 21,000+ pinprick club -- she's going strong, but what a thing to live with. Thanks for your help in finding a cure!

Great cause :o) If I wasn't almost completely unemployed and completely broke I'd donate...I'm really sorry.

What a great way to support a worthy cause. Looks like a fun group. I donated locally for diabetes since a friend's child has it. My DH has type-2.
