Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
As most of you know my nephew Joey was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a year ago. This came as quite a shock to my family, as we have no family history of the disease. My brother and his family have had a tough year coping with this diagnosis, but have come together as a family and have done a wonderful job making sacrifices to make sure they are giving Joey the best possible care. My sister in-law is so organized and does a wonderful job taking care of and making sure Joey feels no different than any other child. They amaze me each day with their strength and positive attitudes. Joey has also amazed me this year, he is only nine years old and he can already check his own blood sugar and give himself his insulin shots! I never hear him complain about his disease and he always has a smile on his face. If you have a loved one with this disease or know someone who has type 1 diabetes you know how hard it can be to keep a child's blood sugar stable. It is no easy task!
That is why I am asking you to help me help JDRF remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
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 Joey and millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
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!
