I will be running the Chicago Marathon on October 13th to help find a cure for juvenile diabetes thru the Chicago Diabetes Project and Cellmates on the Run. I have 2 dear friends whose son and daughter, almost simultaeously, were striken with Type 1 diabetes.
We need to find a cure and with your donations, and my raggety old butt running 26 miles we will be that much closer! Please find it in your heart to donate to my page and help find a cure for these kids to lead a normal healthy and diabetes free life!

Cellmates on the Run is the official running team of the Chicago diabetes Project (CDP) that brings individuals together to achieve a common goal: cure diabetes. When you support the CDP you’ll be raising money to advance diabetes research and a functional cure through islet cell transplants. Together, every mile brings us closer to a functional cure for diabetes. To date we have raised over $1 million to fund life-changing diabetes research. With your help, we’ll be 26.2 miles closer to a cure.
