Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
For as long as I can remember, Jenna Ann Marie has dreamed of going into space to see the stars and to visit her "friend" Saturn. She wants to be an astronaut and a mom when she grows up, and even got to meet a real astronaut when we were on vacation last summer. Unfortunately, Jenna was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on October 28, 2013. What Jenna doesn't know is that N.A.S.A does not allow people with diabetes in space - at least not yet.
I'm joining this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D.
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.
Thank you for your support!
