Hi Everyone,

Sorry it’s been a while since the last update. The past few months have been super busy for me and I just haven’t had the time to update the blog BUT… I have a ton of weddings to post and I’m hoping to get to that later this month. In the mean time the daughter of one of my fellow wedding photography friends is going to be participating in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s walk for a cure. I’d like to encourage everyone to help Lauren out in raising money for such a worthwhile cause. I’ve posted the information below. The walk is this Sunday (October 14th) so hurry up and donate now!!! Thanks everyone!

Cheers, Joe

Support Lauren Frischling in the 2007 Walk to Cure Diabetes

Greetings!

I’m writing to you to ask for your support in a very special cause.

This year, I’ll be taking part in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’sWalk to Cure Diabetes along with a half-million other walkers across the country. Our goal: To raise $100 million to help fund research for a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications.

Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes, is a devastating, often deadly disease that affects millions of people–a large and growing percentage of them children.

Many people think type 1 diabetes can be controlled by insulin. While insulin does keep people with type 1 diabetes alive, it is NOT a cure. Aside from the daily challenges of living with type 1 diabetes, there are many severe, often fatal, complications caused by the disease.

That’s the bad news… and yes, it’s pretty bad.

The good news, though, is that a cure for type 1 diabetes is within reach. In fact, JDRF funding and leadership is associated with most major scientific breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes research to date. And JDRF funds a major portion of all type 1 diabetes research worldwide, more than any other charity.

I’m writing to ask for your support because now more than ever, EACH of us can be a part of bringing about a cure. Each of us can make a real difference

Won’t you please give to JDRF as generously as you’re able?

Together, we can make the cure a reality.

Thank you,

Lauren Frischling
