The incidence of Diabetes is on the rise and is well on its way to becoming a worldwide epidemic. Raising awareness for this disease is critical, as we all know someone that is personally affected by either Type I or Type II Diabetes.
Juvenile Diabetes is a chronic metabolic condition that affects a person’s bloodstream, creating multiple health problems. Being diagnosed with juvenile Diabetes is a life sentence of insulin shots, finger pricks, and physical problems with fluctuating high and low blood sugar. Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is dedicated to finding a cure.
Recently, WarmlyYours participated in a fundraiser for juvenile diabetes by donating a Barcelona Towel Warmer for the event. J.J. Twigs Pizza in Lake Zurich and JDRF, joined together to host the fundraiser, to support local youth to find a cure for juvenile diabetes.
The donations that were received were used directly toward helping 22 students in District 95 schools fighting the disease.
“I'm happy that WarmlyYours, in its charity efforts, can do its part by supporting those affected by Diabetes,” said Julia Billen, President & Owner of WarmlyYours.
