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.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
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. They keep us posted on what kind of studies are going on. That's how we found out about the study that Kevin is in at Rady's Children's Hospital now.
JDRF does more than search for the cure, though. They support the families living with T1D. The day we got Kevin's diagnosis was one of the most difficult days of my life, and I've had some pretty hard ones. I really thought my son was going to die. JDRF was one of the first opportunities I had for support for both Kevin and I. They gave him a small backpack, perfect for carrying his diabetic supplies. It had in it a free meter with test strips, and test strips are so expensive you wouldn't believe it. There was also a teddy bear named Rufus along with a story book about how he had T1D. I made use as soon as Kevin went back to school of the pamphlets they supplied for giving teachers and coaches a brief overview of what T1D is and how they could help him. Needless to say, all of these tools were a huge blessing in our lives as well as the support group that we're still a part of today.
Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Thank you for your support!
You can see my mom's published page about my Type 1 Diabetes at http://jdrfstory.org/story/post/20688/near/32.6245/-117.039. She's constantly working to educate groups like Congress about the importance of the research JDRF facilitates.
