Please join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my 2014 JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
Many of you already know our Grandson Anthony was diagnosed with T1D one year ago last December. We are happy to tell you that Anthony is doing well. He has been just the most remarkable kid!!! We thank God every day that He gave us such a strong little boy and that with the help of doctors, family and friends we have been able to control Anthony's diabetes well. Anthony is busy with school, friends, family and sports. He rarely complains about the insulin four times a day or the testing that accompanies that.
We are joining this year's Walk again as TEAM ANTHONY to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people like Anthony with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money we 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 our commitment and donate to our Walk fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
