Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I 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.
I will be walking in honor of my daughter Emily who was diagnosed when she was 13. Emily has a determined spirit not to let type 1 diabetes drag her down but in reality this hideous disease sometimes gets the best of her. Type 1 diabetes is a 24/7 disease it gives no breaks and at times shows no mercy. Emily and I have spent many a sleepless night testing and correcting blood sugar just to get in a normal range. She has had to leave fun events due to highs and lows that take every bit of energy from her. Normal everday activitys, sports and school are sometimes effected by type 1 diabetes. I am hopeful and prayful for a cure in her life time but we need your help.
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 and God Bless You!!
