Help TEAM ANTHONY turn Type1 into Type NONE!

Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!  I am walking for my HERO, Anthony! 

As you are probably aware, Anthony was diagnosed with T1D on 12.20.12.  Since that day, this has turned into our family CAUSE.  My goal is BIG-- I am aware of this, but we can do it.  We have to do it, so that we can find a CURE for this disease.  That's my hope- and I won't give up until it happens. 

Any amount is appreciated and gets us one step closer to turning Type1 into Type NONE.  Please donate!  I thank you- Anthony thanks you.


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!

Kia and family and all of TEAM ANTHONY
