Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my JDRF Walk personal 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 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.
My motivation for joining the JDRF Ozarks Walk For A Cure is my son Mason Legg. Mason was diagnosed in October of 2012, just days before his 10th birthday. Mason is an inspiration to us all. He does his routine an never complains, showing great character and responsibility. This past August we lost Mason and his sister's, McKenna, dad to sudden heart failure. Both children have been incredibly strong and resilent and I would love to make this event successful.
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.
