While most of you probably know that I have type I diabetes, you may not know that I was diagnosed at the age of 2. While I will walk for myself, for research, and a potential cure, I will walk on this day especially for my little friend Luke who was recently diagnosed. He has some of the best parents, family, and friends in the world and I could not imagine fundraising for a better team! Please consider donating to support Luke, myself, and everyone else that lives with type I diabetes on a daily basis. We only have a short time before the walk so donate soon! Thank you in advance!
Read below for more information about the walk, type I diabetes, and JDRF.
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk 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 until no one has to fear developing the disease.
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.
