I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'll be taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away. My daughter, Michelle, has had type 1 diabetes for 25 years. Each year I keep hoping and praying for a cure for her. The facts below tell only a small part of what she has to endure each day.
So I am asking for your kind support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts for my daughter. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for her and millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you so much for your support! (And Michelle will be extremely grateful, too!)
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
