Isabella Saal





Welcome to Isabella's Fluffy Friends JDRF Kick off!

Please take a moment to watch this short video clip about our mission:

 Isabella Donkey Walkers has a name change....Isabella's Fluffy Friends!

As most of you know, my daughter, Isabella was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic 4 years ago. This diagnosis has changed our family in many ways. As a result, besides closely monitoring her diet, Isabella must test her blood sugar levels 6-10 times a day, even through the night. This does not include the insulin pump change that has to be done every 3 days, as this results in yet another neddle poke. This equates to approximately 2,920 finger sticks and at least 105 pokes for the pump every year.  This will continue every year for the rest of her life unless a cure is found!

 We are excited that our third JDRF Walk for a Cure is coming up so soon!!!

Alone, my family and I cannot make this happen without the help of each of you. Please share this with as many friends as possible so that we can make a difference.

What are some ways that you can help....
