Last July our baby family (me, my fiance Tristan, and our pet rats) lost a family member to type 1 diabetes (T1D). After a lifetime battle of injections, infections, heart problems, and amputations, Tristan's father lost his life to T1D. His absence at our wedding next year will be hard and our children will never meet this remarkable man because of this devastating disease.
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by T1D. Although it is too late to help our family, there is still a chance for our friends and the millions who are diagnosed with 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.
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?
