Top of Mind Thursday Sept 26, 2013: Two Decades Later, the Quest Continues

Top of Mind Thursday
This past Monday we celebrated a milestone: Twenty years since my daughter Ilana’s diagnosis with Type 1 diabetes just before her second birthday.

Leverage2Market LogoTwo decades ago, the outlook for kids with type 1 diabetes was dire. We were told that within 15-20 years, there was a high probability that Ilana could suffer severe complications of diabetes, including problems with her kidneys, vision, and peripheral arteries.

Today, we still don’t have a cure for type 1 diabetes, which impacts more than 2 million people, but the medical advances have been consistent and persistent and Ilana remains healthy and strong.

In celebration of twenty years of living with and beating back this disease, I am making available Night Songs, the newly released recording of me playing classical piano music, to anyone who makes a donation of $20 or more to JDRF, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Your contribution will help us continue the progress to find a cure for this devastating disease.
