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

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

On April 18, 2013, I raced my baby to the ER, not knowing what was wrong with him...just that my normally healthy child had something seriously wrong...we got to the ER and the doctors started saying things like "toxic" and they started asking rodney and i if we wanted pastoral services to come meet with us...i'd never been in this situation before but if they were offering prayer, i took it immediately...within minutes, the pastor was in the ER room with us, standing next to Rodney and i and praying for the health and safety of our little boy as the ER personnel worked on him...we soon learned the diagnosis and our world turned upside down as we started realizing all the changes life was going to make, not just for cameron but for his ENTIRE family...we are walking in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes to raise money to one day find a cure for this horrible disease so that kids like cameron can live a long, healthy, normal life...can you make a donation??

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.

Thank you for your support!
