Welcome to my Personal Page for the Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes!
I will be participating in the Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives.
The money I raise is in honor of my dear family friend, Linda Doyle, who had Type 1 Diabetes. She was a huge influence in my life, and is greatly missed. Her kindness, bravery and sheer joy for life continue to live on through the many people she touched.
What is Type 1 Diabetes? T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential 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.
That's where JDRF comes in...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.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by T1D
Thank you for your support!
