Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
We're helping JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation to JDRF, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of millions of people affected by T1D.
In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.
When you donate to JDRF, you are giving hope to the millions of people who are diagnosed with this life threatening disease. And one of those people is my son. Cale was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on November 7, 2013 and his life has changed dramatically since then. Every donation, big or small, allows JDRF to fund the critical research needed to find a cure.
