                    Welcome

O
        n behalf of the 2006 JDRF Dream
        Gala Committee, I would like to
        welcome you to “WILD for the
Cure” – An Evening to Honor Sam & Ann
Furrow. This is the night for us to honor
Sam & Ann for their contributions to the
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation,
both voluntarily and financially.

I have many reasons for partnering with
JDRF. My most selfish reason is that I am a
type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed when I was 23 years old and
have lived every day with the constant reminder that my life is a
little different than most. I know that when I was first diagnosed,
I thought it was the end of the world. As I have now lived with
juvenile diabetes for the past 12 years, I know that there is so
much more to life! I encourage kids and adults with diabetes to
believe there is hope for a cure in our future!

Thank you for coming to this year’s Gala and helping us in the
fight against diabetes. My thanks to everyone who has given
much time and effort into the success of this evening’s event. I
hope that you will enjoy the scenery, the music, the food and are
able to go home with an auction item you really wanted. Please
help us to “Fund A Cure” as we raise money to honor Sam & Ann
Furrow. The funds raised here will directly impact the mission of
JDRF – to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through
the support of research.

Dear Friends,

I am delighted to acknowledge the East Tennessee Chapter on its 2006
Dream Gala, Wild for the Cure. Your event reflects the outstanding
efforts and contributions of your staff and volunteers to diabetes
research and to increasing awareness of the seriousness of the disease.

As someone who has lived with type 1 diabetes for more than 35
years, I am most grateful to this year’s Honorees, Ann and Sam
Furrow for their outstanding commitment to JDRF and our mission. I
extend my sincere thanks to Gala Chair, Cathy Gillenwater and all of
tonight’s many guests. Through your efforts and generous support
we are moving “research to reality.” Together, we will fulfill JDRF’s
mission…to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the
support of research.


                                     Warm regards,
