Team Ava Rocks walking for a cure October 3rd 2010

May 28th 2010 Ava was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes leaving her insulin dependent. Andy and I have decided if ANYTHING we would like to raise awareness of Type 1 diabetes and the challenges that we are faced with every day. We have also decided to support the search for a cure (which Ava's Dr believes we will see in her lifetime!) by walking in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk for a Cure Saturday October 3rd 2010 @ Oaks Park in Portland, Oregon. We have a donation account set up at Bank of the Cascades under" Donation account for Ava Grace Morris" from this account we will be allocating funds to be donated directly to JDRF on behalf of Ava's team and some will be used for travel to Portland (she also has a Dr's appointment at Legacy Emanuel the Monday following the event) any additional funds will be used to help with Ava's daily diabetic supply needs and travel to and from Portland every 3 months for her appointments at Legacy Emanuel(which is where her care is being managed). We are asking every one to help us by spreading awareness of Type 1 Diabetes and if you can, join our JDRF team and Walk for a Cure. A BIG warm THANK YOU to everyone who has been so supportive and helpful already, many of you have already learned a lot and have been able to get the word out there about Type 1 Diabetes and JDRF on Ava’s behalf, Thank You!
