Haley's Comets will be walking in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 at Tempe Town Lake in Tempe, Arizona!
Haley was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes more than seven years ago. Every year since then and every year until a cure is found, we will be walking in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong disease with no cure... yet. A person gets this disease when the immune system sees their insulin-producing cells in their pancreas as a virus and destroys them. Insulin is a hormone in the body that allows energy from food to be used by the body. Because people with type 1 diabetes do not produce insulin, they must either inject it into their body, or wear an insulin pump.
JDRF is the leading funder of type 1 diabetes research. 80 cents out of every dollar goes directly to research. JDRF is currently working on many studies to prevent, better treat, and cure type 1 diabetes. To learn more about diabetes and what your donation would be put towards, please watch our walk video by going to the link provided in the blue below.
