Golfers Lending a Hand

I read a press release tonight about a Chicago charity event, and thought I would share it with you. It’s a little off topic for this blog, but I know I have a few readers in the windy city with big hearts, so I am going to share anyway. International Profit Associates has organized a golfing event to raise funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

I have a friend that I have known since I was a child who has Juvenile Diabetes. If you know anything about JD, you know that’s a mighty big statement I just made. I have a friend, not I had a friend. He was never expected to live past his early 20s, and I remember the stunned feeling we all had when he was diagnosed in his early teens. He’s my age, you see. He’s a minister now, with a lovely wife, and three beautiful children. And sing, oh can he sing!! He gives Christian concerts in teh area, and has recorded a couple of CDs. It’s because of research funding that he has been able to live a full life with his diabetes under control. That, and a bit of help from above.
