Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! Team Sweet B!!!!
We are taking steps to help JDRF achieve its goal of improving the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. By joining our Walk Team and/or making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.
We are walking to support our son Brandon. He was diagnosed October 31, 2011. Brandon has come a long way from when we started this journey almost 2 years ago. He is such a strong and remarkable young man. This disease has been very challenging but through it all Brandon has remained positive and upbeat. He needs to take insulin injections for any food that he eats and he has to check his blood sugar multiple times a day. He dreams of a day that a cure will be found. He wants to be able to eat something without having to figure out the carbs first and wonder how it will effect his blood sugar. He wants to be able to play basketball and football without having to worry about his blood sugar going too low. He wants to just be a kid and not have to worry about being too high or too low, or taking shots, or pricking his fingers for the 8th time today. He wants a cure. Please help us make that dream come true. We need your help. Please make a donation to our team today. Every dollar we raise is a dollar that gets us one step closer to finding a cure.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by donating to our team!
Thank you for your support!
