We are honored to have the Fenton Family serving as the Fund A Cure Family for this year’s Party with a Purpose: “A Night Under the Stars!” At this year’s event, Carrie Fenton will share her family’s story of how her son, Hank, has courageously battled T1D since age three. She will also be joined by her daughter, Mavis, and mother and father-in-law, Monica and John, for this impactful evening benefiting JDRF.
The Fentons accepted the honor of being this year’s Fund A Cure Family because they believe JDRF is a champion advocate for every person diagnosed with T1D and their families. Carrie’s message to any new parents struggling with a T1D diagnosis is simple: “you are not alone.” To learn more about the Fentons and their story of perseverance, visit JaxJDRFParty.com. #JAXPWP #JaxJDRFParty #PartyWithAPurpose
