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.
we rececently learne thzt James (my husband is Type 1 diabetes)....its in my house..
It has always been in my family, My dad died after going into a diabetic coma that will never leave my memory. That man never drank, never smoked (anything) and was always willing to help anyone who needed anything. but he died after a diabetic coma....
I have multiple other family members (including my Husband) who have diabetes, or have died fron ddiabetes, it is an unforgiving disease.
i can't bring Dad back, but I can try to protect the ones I love that are still here....
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!
