Thanks for taking the time to leave Facebook, Twitter, Candy Crush (I know ya'll are addicted, I get the requests all the time!) and come to my personal fundraising page!
So I know everyone hates reading those long paragraphs about what I'm doing and why. And then the real message gets lost, so I'll try to make this short and sweet.
Basically, I'm raising money for Type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease (the internet told me this means the body is pretty much fighting itself) 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.
The jist is, as with any disease, research takes money. All those materials, chemicals, tests...well they don't just appear as much as I wish it worked that way. Then those intelligent scientists do something complex and way over my head and form treatments and, hopefully one day, a cure. So that's why JDRF needs our help. Plus those crazy scientists don't work for free you know?
So 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. Think of all the children, mothers, fathers, uncles, teachers living with this. So cut out your Starbucks for the day, maybe bring your lunch to work instead of going out that day, drive past Kripsy Kreme and in place, donate $1, $5, however much or little. Just remember (as cliche as it is) every little bit counts.
Thank you for your support!
