Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
This year I am walking for my baby girl, Allie. She was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and we are still learning all of the tricks and trades. This is a very difficult diagnosis for us, considering it is with her for a lifetime. She is 5 years old and is one the most strong-willed kids. She has the biggest heart and sweetest mind.
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. Would you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today? Anything helps!
Thank you for your support!
