UNITED Member Helps Out a Friend

jdrfUNITED Galaxy member Parker Shearon gave her “support” to her friend, Harper, who was diagnosed this past summer with Juvenile Diabetes.

Parker participated as one of Harper’s Heroes in the Walk to Cure Diabetes on Saturday, October 5, at Shelby Farms.

Approximately 15,000 children are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) each year and are forced to live the rest of their lives dependent on insulin, as their bodies have stopped producing it on their own. T1D can not be prevented and there is no cure. Hopefully, through the research done by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, there will one day be a cure for Harper and all the other millions of Americans who may have Type 1 Diabetes.
