Help 'TEAM ANTHONY' turn Type 1 into Type 'NONE'!

Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!

Our son, Anthony was diagnosed in late December 2012.  A positive, energetic and hopeful kid, he has accepted his circumstances, but it has been a life changing journey for him and our family.  Millions of kids like Anthony are dependent on our efforts to raise money to find a cure to help them live a more normal life and avoid the risks associated with T1D.

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, including ANTHONY.

Thank you for your support!
