"We've lost a child to diabetes. There is no greater pain. It is a parent's worst nightmare. Those of you who have experienced such a loss will understand; and I pray that those who haven't never will. Marc didn't have to die, but he did he died because he lost the fight against diabetes."

Dear Sample A. Sample,
Robert and his family are not alone. There are nearly 24 million people in the United States with diabetes, and unless we stop the epidemic, one-third of children born today will face the reality of struggling each day with this disease.
The American Diabetes Association's goal is to find a cure, but we urgently need your support. Help stop the diabetes epidemic with a tax-deductible gift now.
America is waging a war against diabetes. Your year-end tax-deductible gift of $25, $50 or $75 will provide additional funding for vital research, better treatments for diabetes, and programs to protect the rights of people with diabetes.
Time is running out for 2008: Donate online by December 31 to claim your 2008 tax deduction.
You can honor a loved one with a donation in their name and send a print or email announcement of your gift. Or create a lasting memorial gift in the name of someone who lost the fight.
Help us win the war against diabetes.
John Buse, MD, PhD
President, Medicine & Science
American Diabetes Association
