Please help Aidan and my dad: donate to help diabetes .
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes page!
I'm joining this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D), like my 10 year old nephew Aidan and my father, Bob, who has lived with type 1 diabetes for 67 years!
T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, which the body needs to get energy from food. Managing the disease requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.
JDRF is working every day to change that. And, as the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research, every dollar JDRF directs toward its research plan comes from donors like you.
Please support my commitment and donate to my Walk fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
