Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!

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

My dad was diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago and is fortunate to be able to control it with diet and medication.† However, there is another†form of the disease†- type 1 diabetes (T1D) - that is more difficult to control.† I'll be taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).†

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.

Did you know that:

  • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
  • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
  • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
  • Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?

As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D.† JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.† Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?


Thank you for your support!
