JDRF - Juvenile Diabetes Ride For Life!
In lieu of discussing mortgage financing I want to talk about a Disease that many Canadians & people around the world suffer from. That is, Diabetes. My brother & now his son, my nephew, both have Type 1 Diabetes both got it when they were very young. As a child I watched my brother deal with the fact that he had to give himself a needle twice a day for the rest of his life as well as some of the complications of this disease which can be anywhere from blindness, infection, stroke, kidney or heart disease.Because of these ties the search for a cure is very close to my heart. That's why this year, like many before, I am leading a team of Mortgage Brokers from Mortgage Alliance West in a charity event called the JDRF ride for life. It's taking place this year on Oct. 24th.If anyone has the means or the desire to donate to our team & this great cause it would be greatly appreciated. Please do so HERE.Thank you.
