As most of you know, Lauren was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (or as we like to call it - "the sugar") last September. She has handled it like a champ, even though it is not always easy. We've had highs and lows, ins and outs and lots of bad days to go with the good days. Sometimes you hardly remember that she even has the sugar! She is a very active lady! She plays softball year round, and is always on the run with one friend or the other. She has an incredible group of friends that are extremely supportive and don't get "too" squeamish as she's doing her shots! hahh.
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds 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.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
