Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
November marks one year since Phoebe's diagnosis with type 1 diabetes, and what better way to mark that anniversary than by participating in the JDRF Diabetes Walk. It's been quite a year learning to make diabetes a part of our family's world. Phoebe shows amazing strength and courage, and is doing well. But, the cruel fact of the matter is that every day people die from type 1 diabetes. Despite fabulous new technology, diligence in diet and blood sugar checks, parents who never sleep through the night, people still die. We need a cure. And in the countless hours I've spent learning everything I can about this disease, I see the JDRF as our greatest hope for finding a cure. Phoebe talks about "someday when there's a cure for diabetes." It's "when" for her, not "if". Help us make that a reality for her.
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!
