Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Tricia and I have decided to do this because we believe there can be a cure found through more support, and because we have a personal friend who has been affected directly through her daughter, Ellie - one of the brightest, bravest kids we have met in a long time outside our own! Please help by donating even just a little towards our effort - we would be most appreciative!
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Thank you for your support!
