RANDOLPH, NJ On Sunday, Oct. 19 Andrea Valcuha, Director of Little Notes Music School in Randolph, New Jersey and the Morganstein family of Randolph, New Jersey—held a benefit concert, “The Journey: Type One to Type None” on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
For the past ten years, since the inception of the Little Notes Music School, Andrea has had the pleasure of instructing Isaac Morganstein and his family. Isaac was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) at the age of two. Today, Isaac and his family are committed to aid in the research to help find a cure. As a musician and teacher, Ms. Valcuha fells there is no greater fulfillment than using her knowledge and talent to support such a great cause.
Isaac’s parents will never forget the day that doctors diagnosed their son, Isaac, with Type 1 diabetes. That day changed their lives forever. That’s why the Morganstein family wants to help their family and the millions of families like theirs by raising money to help fund a cure.
Local musicians and students of Randolph Middle School and Isaac’s friends from Randolph High School donated their time and talent to help raise money for JDRF. All proceeds from ticket sales went to JDRF, over $1000.
These donations enable JDRF to fund research that will help remove the daily burden, side effects, and complications of Type 1 Diabetes. A diagnosis of T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle, and there is nothing you can do to prevent it. Currently, there is no cure. People with T1D must manage the disease by injecting or pumping insulin several times a day, every day. But insulin is not a cure, and it does not prevent the possibility of serious complications like kidney failure, blindness, and stroke.
