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.
As many of you know I have been a diabetic for 21 years. I was diagnosed when I was 10 years old and its been a struggle for me thru the years. As you also may now I am not athletic...I have done the walk in years past but this will be a big challenge for me so I am asking you to support me physically, mentally and monetarial on this journey.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. No amount is to small because every little bit helps. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
- T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
- T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
- Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
- Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
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!
