Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome friends and family!
As you may already know, I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in February 2009. Needless to say, my life changed forever. Being only 7 weeks pregnant with Connor and totally blindsided by the diagnosis I had no idea what the future would bring.
With my 5 year 'diaversary' approaching i have decided to join Team JDRF and run the Disney Half-marathon on Jan. 9 2014. I am asking for your support to reach my goal of raising $3000 for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Diabetes can be unpredictable...especially with 3 crazy kids! Peyton, Connor, and Kennedy are also my inspiration for this race. I can only hope there will be a day that they don't have to watch me take my blood sugar 8 times a day, change my insulin pump, listen to my sensor alarm for a high or low...or just watch me be overwhelmed.
As I train, I am asking each of you for your help. Please consider a donation, no matter how small, to help me reach my fundraising goal. Please support me in this journey, and help make my goal of a future without diabetes a reality.
Thank you for your support!
