Help Adam and I punch diabetes in the face!

Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!

I'm joining this year's Walk because of this beautiful boy. Adam is my 3-year-old grandson. He has type 1 diabetes. He was diagnosed at 15 months old and will be insulin dependent for the rest of his life, unless a cure is found. The money I raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D.

T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, which the body needs to get energy from food. Managing the disease requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.

JDRF is working every day to change that. And, as the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research, every dollar JDRF directs toward its research plan comes from donors like you.

Please support my commitment and donate to my Walk fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.

Thank you for your support!
