Welcome TEAM JOSEPH to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
Joseph was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on 1-11-13 at the age of 3 1/2. Joseph has to have at least 5 injections of insulin per day just to survive! Dispite everything that he has to endure on a daily basis, Joseph has remained a happy, carefree kid. As a family we are here to fight to raise awareness to this life threatening disease and to raise money to find a cure. No child deserves to live with this disease and we know that JDRF will not stop until a cure is found!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. 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 only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your love and support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
