Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
My sister, Ellie was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a year and a half ago when she was ten years old. Since her diagnosis, her life has greatly changed. Her daily struggle is difficult to watch. She gives herself multiple injections of insulin each day and night, and will have to for the rest of her life if there is not a cure. It's a constant battle for her to keep her blood sugar stabilized. There are terrible consequences to her body when her blood sugar goes too low or high.
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!
