Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
This will be my first year walking for JDRF, and most definitely not my last. I am walking for a very sweet little boy, Jaeden. Jaeden is the son of 2 of my closest friends. He will be 6 in September this year. Jaeden was diagnosed right before Christmas when he was only 3 years old. I love this little boy dearly, and I am hoping you will all support this wonderful cause in his honor.
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!
