Welcome to Team Chloe JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
December 17, 2012 started like any other day, until our Chloe was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. From this day forward our famliy and friends lives changed, but more importantly Chloe's life changed forever. She was a 5 year old facing a lifetime livign with diabetes, monitoring everything she eats, giving herself insulin injections and checking her blood sugar. Sitting in the hospital we were terrified of how to now care for our baby girls new needs, but we knew that no matter what we would give her the best care possible. With the support of our family, friends and care takers Chloe is now a thriving 6 year old who loves school and playing soccer.
We will be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people like Chloe living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money we 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 our team and donate to our 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!
