Join me in turning Type One into Type None!

    Welcome to my JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!  

    I am riding in the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes in LaCrosse, Wisconsin to raise money for JDRF, the leading global organization that funds type 1 diabetes ("T1D") research.   I ride in this JDRF Fundraiser to honor all those with T1D who work EVERY DAY to  compensate for the fact that their pancreas was attacked and left without the functions that you and I take for granted.  I ride to raise funds for research that will eliminate the need for constant blood, diet, and exercise monitoring so that the millions of people who tackle T1D every day can get back to not worrying whether they get the calculation right EVERY Moment of their lives.  And I ride for all those who may contract T1D in the future, hoping that research that JDRF leads and sponsors, will lead to the DISCOVERY of the Cause of T1D, so that the smart guys and gals in the labs can come up with how to PREVENT T1D.

    Did you know that T1D:

    - Strikes children and adults as an auto-immune disease with no known marker or cause,

    - Occurs when the immune system attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.

     - Requires 24 hour blood-glucose testing, food and activity calculating, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.

    JDRF is working every day to lessen the 24/7 burdens that people with T1D carry through an exceptional staff of PhD scientists who work with academic and industry researchers to develop life-changing therapies and devices until a cure is found.   Thank you for your donation to fund and lead this important research so that we can move to a world of Type NONE!

     Big Hugs,

    Wendy
