Welcome to Karin Stoldt's Personal Page Heather's Heros

Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million.

Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.

Our 8 year old niece, Heather, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on August 11, 2010. It has been an enormous & overwhelming change for our family.  Heather must check her blood sugar, multiple times a day, by pricking her finger.  Heather must also take insulin injections 4 or more times a day.  She is always at risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) & hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), which can be life-threatening. Insulin, daily exercise, monitoring her food intake & blood sugar are necessary for her survival.


There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.

Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
