Master Helps in the Effort against Juvenile Diabetes
By New York News Group (Originally in English)
August 15, Golden Year 6 (2009), initiates from our New York
Center were honored to present Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
(JDRF) volunteers Mark Bernstein and Michael Denmark with a
generous contribution of US$10,000 from Supreme Master Ching
Hai. Mr. Bernstein and Mr. Denmark coordinate events that inform
the public about type 1 diabetes and raise funds for research
to find a cure.
“Each year, approximately 30,000 Americans
are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes; over 15,000 are children.
That's 35 children every day, approximately one child per hour.”
(www.jdrf.org) Because diabetes is so prevalent in the US,
Mr. Bernstein stresses the importance of regular checkups for
an interview for Supreme Master TV, Mr. Bernstein and Mr. Denmark
thanked Supreme Master Ching Hai and discussed upcoming events
such as the Walk to Cure Diabetes held across the US to raise
funds and spread the word about type 1 diabetes. The Foundation
also supports research efforts such as The Pancreas Project.
The JDRF Artificial Pancreas is a transplant that regulates
insulin in the body without the need for daily injections or
the use of a pump.
May God bless the JDRF in their efforts to cure diabetes
and may all people choose the wholesome plant-based diet in order
to enjoy good health and lasting happiness.
Thank you letter from JDRF for Master’s US$10,000 contribution
