Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
We 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.
I'm joining this years walk in honor of my granddaughter Kaylee who was diagnosed with T1D on January 7th 2014. When they say life turns on a dime they weren't kidding. For this disease has turned our family up side down.We all had to learn sugar levels what highs and lows are and how quickly they all can change.
My little Angle is strong but she's only 2 and has her hole life ahead of her. So I'm fundraising not only for her, but for every one out there that has been impacted by this disease. Every dollar counts to bring my little Angel and others closer to a cure!
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.
