Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! As most of you know, I have been living with Type 1 diabetes(T1D) for over 33 years and I'm a pediatric diabetes nurse educator to help teach children and their families how to live with this disease. It is my personal HOPE that I live to see the cure for Type 1 diabetes; won't you please consider joining our team with your donation?
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!
