Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'll be taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D (myself included), they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
I was diagnosed at age 4 with Diabetes. It has been a tough but good life. I started with injections (4-6 a day) and finally took the plunge and now have an insulin pump. Without the help and research of JDRF the pump might never have existed. My levels and overall health have improved dramatically.
It is important to continue efforts in the research department. You never know what htey are going to come up with next or who you might know that will be diagnosed in the future. My hope would be a cure!
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Any amount is a positive step for research and is tax deductible.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
