Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!
Hello, thank you for visiting our page. Here is a little history about us. Ryan who is 15, almost 16, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 5 years old. He has been an amazing role model for his sister. Ellen, who just turned 12, was diagnosed 2 weeks before her 7th birthday. She has been remarkable, for Ellen it was just a part of life. Greg and I are so proud of both of our children! They both need to make choice that no teenagers should. They have needed to grow up very fast. High school and Middle school are hard enough and they both balance everything so well. Thanks to your support, hopefully one day they can live a life without diabetes!
We will 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.
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.
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. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support! Love, Greg, Shelly, Ryan and Ellen
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).
