Join our team in the fight to help create a world without type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!

As you all know, a couple of months ago I was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes.  I got really sick and I ended up in the intensive care unit in Iowa City.  All I know is that the nurses were giving me lots of shots and poking my finger with needles.  I was suprised and horrified to learn that this is now my life.  I can no longer eat whatever I want whenever I want.  I believe that they are close to a cure but as we all know, research takes funding. By joining my Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation to JDRF, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of millions of people affected by T1D.

In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D 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 the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every donation, big or small, from donors like you, allows JDRF to fund the critical research needed to find a cure.  JDRF is not funded by the government and every dollar donated goes straight to research.
