Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
I'm joining this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D), including my son who was diagnosed November 7, 2013. The money I raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D so hopefully one day Cale and millions of others will not have to suffer.
T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, which the body needs to get energy from food. Managing the disease requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.
If you would like to join us on our walk that would be awesome! I am going to make t-shirts and we will have a lot of fun! Just click on "join my team" and follow the prompts. If you would like to donate, click "donate" and follow the prompts. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
