Welcome to our personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! We'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, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
As I am sitting here typing this I still can't believe my son has T1D! I was diagnosed when I was 10 years old, over 25 years ago! It was a lot different back then, there were so many restrictions and I felt different than all of my friends. Even though I had support from my family and close friends I still felt different so I tried to keep my disease a secret. I don't want Jacob to be the way I was, I want him to know that it is ok and he is not alone. He can still accomplish anything he wants to do! I am doing the walk for the first time ever and I am doing it for my son!! Jacob has amazed me, he hasn't complained once about all the extras has to do just to eat a meal or a snack with having to count every single carb and actually having to research his meal before he can even take a bite, he just says it's a part of life! He has such a great attitude about his disease and he is such an inspiration to me! Please join us!!
We are asking for your support. Please donate to our personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help us make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
