Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
My family has a walk team - Marching for Mickey in honor of our Dad who raised money for the Ron Santo walk for years. He did it because his son (my brother!) Jay has Type 1 and has for 33 years. He walked for his grandson Steve - my son - who has lived with it for 6 years. As a Mom and sister - I have diabetes supplies everywhere - supplies for their insulin pumps - extra meters and dip sticks for them to check their blood sugar 8-12 times a day. Insulin in the frig...juices packs for their blood sugar is low and they need a quick spike. And an equal number of diabetic cook books to gourmet fare.
My Mom celebrated her 80th birthday this year - my brother his 50th and my hubby 60 - each of them asked for one gift - a donation to their walk team.
Please support our walk team and our families effort to find a cure and better treatment options for Steve and Jay.
Thank you for your support!
