Jay Cutler Superstar

Jay Cutler Shares His Diabetes Story

While Jay Cutler's success is of utmost importance to Bears fans, it's also going to benefit children with diabetes. With each touchdown pass Cutler throws, Eli Lilly and Company will donate $1,000 to the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) "campership" fund -- roughly the cost of sending one child to a attend a week of diabetes camp. For each pass that Cutler completes during the 2009 season, they will donate an additional $100 to the "campership" fund.

Hopefully they are donating $40k in TD passes alone! If you'd like to find out more about this campaign and see more videos, just visit www.touchdownsfordiabetes.com.

How much does he get when he runs it in. Last week's acrobatics were great, but if kids are getting better when he uses his arm he may want to stick to throwing.

That one was worth about 50K!

I am a Bronco fan still grieving the lose of Cutler no matter what our record is and I will always be a fan of Cutler. I was a fan even before the diabetes but when he came out with that news I was a life time supporter. you see my 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes short time before he was and myself and my daughter drew strength in seeing how he has handled it and his aggressive involvement in the fight against the disease. Jay Cutler is a great example for youth to keep their dreams alive and not let diabetes stop them from living a full and happy life. Jay Cutler isn't just a great athelete but a great man. Our dream is to see him play one day and maybe even shake his hand. Treat him well Chicago.
