Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
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.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
**A little about myself :) My name is Christina, Im 23 years old. My son was diagnosed with T1D on August 21, 2012. At the time he was only 18 months old, and life hasnt been exactly the same since. He gets insulin shots 4 times daily, and we keep close monitor on everything he eats. It's not easy, It is difficult at times since my husband and I are the only ones who know how to take care of him, but at the same time, it's not at all seen as a burden. He is now just over 2 years old and he understands (for the most part) that he needs his shots before he eats, and he is very cooperative, happy and healthy! :) I have faith he will be strong and work through it. I am very excited for this event, and many more to come :) I have set a goal of $200 to raise for the walk. Please help us to our goal to help research for this disease, and hopefully one day, my son and many other kids and adults can have an easier life! Thank you :) **
Thank you for your support!
