Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
This Saturday, November 9th I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people 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.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease which has affected by family for years. My mother has asked me why I haven’t made this a focus of fundraising due to the impact to our family. I have always said because it is controllable, but realize I really know little about the disease and have only accepted the losses. It is a disease that people are born with that causes a person's pancreas to stop producing insulin. 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 my cause by donating to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your small donation will make a difference for the millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
Thank you for your support!
