Hello my name is Emily Perlman and I am currently living with type 1 diabetes.
This year, I am restarting the "Perlman Generations Walk team" in honor of my mother, grandfather and me, who all have Type I diabetes. I want to help make a difference in finding a cure. The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Please take the time to watch the short video I produced to stress the need for a cure. In the video, you will see others like myself who live with diabetes from meal to meal - from blood sugar reading to blood sugar reading every single day.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
