donate20160218_114804-1Dr. Abrams and his team at Abrams Dermatology are
proud to join the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation walk to raise money to help find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). You can make a donation right at the office or by clicking the link: Donate to the JDRF –

 

20160211_081345-1This is an important cause for the team as Dana’s nephews (our over 13 year loyal Medical Assistant) have been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). Her family has been living with this disease for the past 3 1/2 years.  T1D is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin producing cells in the pancreas. If left untreated, the high level of “blood sugar” can damage eyes, kidneys, nerves, and the heart, and can also lead to coma and death. Since inception, JDRF has contributed over $1.9B to T1D research, including $98M in 2014.

Here’s a little video about them:
