I think we're ready. 171/365

We've got our team leader - Jordan. We have our team name - Jordan's Journey. We just need to ask for donations from everybody we know to help fund diabetes research.

Jordan has the most severe type of the disease (type 1) and, in order to stay alive, has to continually infuse insulin through a pump and test her blood sugar by pricking her finger six+ times a day. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure and a leading cause of nerve damage, stroke, and heart attacks. Diabetes kills one American every three minutes and is the sixth leading cause of death reported in the U.S. JDRF is the only major diabetes organization focused exclusively on research and more than 85% of JDRF's expenditures directly support research. A cure is expected well within Jordan's lifetime. Please consider giving whatever you can to this cause.
