Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!

    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). 

    I was unaware of how terrifying it is to be diagnosed with T1D. My two-year old niece and goddaughter was diagnosed on January 7th, 2014. She is a very strong little girl but I can't help but think about how she will have shots every day for the rest of her life and she won't be able to enjoy sugar highs like other kids. Everyone that cares for her has received training on maintaining her levels, but if anything were to happen causing them to go too low or too high, it could be fatal. 

    I'm fundraising not only for my neice, but for every person out there that has been impacted by this disease. Every dollar counts and brings my little angel closer to a day with no shots or worries.

    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.


    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!
