Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!  I'll be taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).  If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening.  And they know it never goes away.

I am asking for your support.  Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts.  By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.

Did you know that:

  • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age? My boyfriend was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of  21!
  • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle? At the time he weighed 160lb! Did not drink or smoke.
  • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night? It is apart of his and my daily life now whether we like it or not.
  • Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
  • T1D does not just effect the person diagnosed with it, family and friends take on the burden as well. I worry a lot about him because of complecations of him getting sick or not responding to his insulin.

As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D.  JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.  Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?


Thank you for your support!

Please give to my cause! No amount is too small! :)
