Lately, I’ve been asking myself a key question: “What has the JDRF done for me?”
Like really, truly through all the years as I heard that a cure is “right around the corner,” while continuosly raising money for that cure, yet not seeing it around every corner I turned in my life? What have I gotten from the organization so devoted to researching that so-called cure and what do I think of that mission?
Reflecting on this question seriously in recent weeks, some irony has come to mind because of the answer:
In a weird Twighlight Zone sort of way, the JDRF has given me hope.
Maybe not the kind of hope that comes from knowing each dollar I raise for a walk will specifically fund a cure at some specific point in the future. Rather, the hope that a lot of people are looking for a cure with all the passion in their hearts.
