Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
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 research plan to end T1D. But that is not the only reason I am "walking". Someone I love has T1D.
Isabella is one of the coolest girls I know. She always has a smile, she is silly and a little goofy (always has been), and she has such a kind heart. Her mom is my best friend, and I remember the heartbreak on the day she found out Isabella had T1D. I have known Isabella since she was born. I have held her hand when she would get her shots...some were through Skype (lol), but I still felt like I could be there for her in a small way. I haven't been here personally for all of the hospital stays, but she has always been on my heart and in my prayers. Now that we live here in Minnesota I plan on being around the day they find a cure and she can be free of this disease!!!
But, for that to happen I need your help. Research costs money...the way we can help to find a cure is to help fund the research needed. One of the great things about JDRF is every dollar you donate goes to the research! I know it's the holidays, but it is better to give than receive. Your donation could be the small pebble in the big ocean that makes the ripple effect of finding a cure!
Please consider making a donation today. Not for me, but for Isabella, and all the other children that are fighting this disease.
Thank you for your support!
