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

My name is Marcus Berhow, I don't know anyone personally who has (T1D), but a good friend, a Battle Buddy who I was in Afghanistan with,†has a son who is affected by this terrible disease. By the way he talks about him, he loves him very much and would do anything for him. Although I have never met his son, I decided donating wasn't the only thing that I could or should do. I joined his team, even though he has no idea yet. I have met my goal, through my own means, but would like to see others donate to other members of team dietrich. Thank You and please help people who have this disease.

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!† 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).† If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening.† And they know it never goes away.

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!
