Durham Attorney Tells Personal Story to Support October 30th Juvenile Diabetes Fundraiser

Durham, NC, October 17, 2010 --(PR.com)-- For Durham Attorney Philip Mullins, the fight against Juvenile Diabetes is a personal cause. Mullins has two sons who were diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age five and two. Today, at age eleven and seven, they’re doing very well in school and are active, but with a lot of supervision.

“They have 12 or more blood sugar checks per day,” Mullins noted in a recent talk on the subject on behalf of the Triangle Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). “My wife and I have to make insulin adjustments every night because diet and exercise cannot control Type 1 diabetics’ blood sugars.”

Mullins spoke at the Research Triangle Park offices of PPD, to help raise awareness of the 2010 Walk to Cure Diabetes. This year’s JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes will be Saturday, October 30th with registration starting at 8:00 AM, and the walk beginning at 10:30 AM, at the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek.
