I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our nationwide goal of raising $94 million.  

On March 24, 2008, I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) which is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. I spent 5 days in the hospital and learned how to check my blood sugar 8-10 times a day, count carbohydrates and calculate how much insulin to give. My mom and dad learned how to give me shots 4-6 times per day.

JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.

I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.

Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?

Thank you for your support!
