Join me in turning Type One into Type None!

    I will never forget the day that doctors diagnosed my daughter, Paige, with type 1 diabetes (T1D).  It was last year the day after Thanksgiving.  We spent several days in the ICU with her and then several more to learn how to treat T1D.  It was just the beginning...

     

    That day changed our lives forever. And that’s why I want to help my family and the millions of families like ours by training for the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes - Tour de Tucson 107 mile ride on November 22, 2014.

     

    I’m taking part in the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of riders from around the world, to raise money for JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. 

    Did you know T1D:

    - Strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. 

    - Occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Insulin is essential to turning food into energy. 

     - Requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.

    JDRF is working every day to change this. And every dollar I raise helps them continue to bring life-changing therapies from the lab to the community until a cure is found. 

    I have been hard at work training and fundraising, and your gift today will propel me toward the finish line. Please donate and help JDRF achieve its goal of a world without T1D. 

    Please check back to view my fundraising progress as my Ride weekend approaches. Thank you for your support.
