Josh Moreno and Friends of Luke Rodgers WILL come together and make it possible to get a D.A.D's Dog! Please help!

My name is Josh Moreno. I am 12 yrs old. I want to make a difference in my friends life. Luke Rodgers is 7 years, has Juvenile diabetes, and I am GOING to raise the funds to make a "Diabetic alert Dog" a reality. These dogs save lives. They could sense if Luke needs attention, even in the middle of the night! Please see information, learn about it with me, and help make this goal a reality. I am asking for sponsorship for distance running, push-ups, and stair climing. Thanks for your time and helping out.

Next sponsor: running a 5k (3 miles) 6-27-12

Juvenile (Type 1) Diabetes Fact Sheet

More than one million Americans have juvenile (type 1) diabetes—a disease which strikes children suddenly, makes them insulin dependent for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. Someone is diagnosed with juvenile diabetes every hour. It can and does strike adults as well. In juvenile diabetes, a person’s pancreas produces little or no insulin, a hormone necessary to sustain life. Although the causes are not entirely known, scientists believe the body’s own immune system attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. It is not caused by obesity or by eating excessive sugar, which are two common myths about juvenile diabetes.
