Heather's Hope For A Cure

 

 

 

 

My Name is Heather  and I live with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Many people believe that insulin is a cure, but it is not. I am committed to JDRF, the leading global organization focused on T1D research. JDRF raises funds that power the global movement to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). The goal of JDRF is to improve the lives of every person affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating and preventing T1D.

When I was 23, I was diagnosed with the disease T1D. This day changed my life forever. Type 1 diabetes has no cure. Many people believe that insulin is a cure, but it is not. Diabetes needs constant attention. To stay alive, people with type 1 diabetes must take multiple insulin injections daily or continually infuse insulin through a pump. Each day, every day, for the rest of my life I will have to carefully monitor food and insulin intake, as well as exercise to to maintain a careful balance and avoid high or low blood sugar reactions that can be life-limiting or life threatening.

This year's Walk takes place on February 22, 2014, at the Mall of America. It is a completely free event for all ages! I'm writing to ask for your support. Now more than ever, you can make a real difference in my life and the lives of all people with type 1 diabetes. Please either join my team, Heather’s Hope for a Cure, as a fundraiser or support me with a donation. It’s simple, fast and fun! Please visit my personal page to join and/or make a tax deductible donation. Cash or check donations are also welcome. Please fill out the donation form. Checks are payable to JDRF juvenile diabetes research foundation.
