Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
As many of you know my best friend/sister Tara Fletcher Carnes (TJO) was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 7 years old. She has been battling this disease for 23 years now. Giving herself shots of insulin and pricking her finger several times daily quickly became her new normal. Just the simple things in life that we take for granted such as eating what we want , exercising and running around all day with our children brings on a whole new concept for Tara and her diabetes. Her blood sugar levels drop to a critically low level if she isnt consistantly checking them and balancing her nutritional intake. Each day brings on new trials and tribulations as she strives to live the active life of a mother with two little girls. Please join us in the JDRF walk to cure Diabetes- November 2nd 2013. If you would like to donate any money amount to the cause we will provide you with a tee shirt to wear the day of the walk! Sign up as a member and add yourself to Team TJO!
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!
