Join me in the fight to cure, better treat, and prevent type 1 diabetes!
Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes along with hundreds of other riders across the country to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
My close friend Pat was diagnosed with T1D at the age of 11. Ever since then, it has been a daily battle for Pat to constantly monitor his diabetes. Pat estimates that he checks his blood sugar level and gives himself 4-5 shots a day. This means that over the past 17 years Pat has pricked his finger and given himself a shot approximately 28,000 times. Although Pat is very good at monitoring his diabetes, his family, friends, co-workers, and others who surround him on a daily basis must be aware of it and look out for his well being.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for the millions of people like Pat living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
