Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
My name is Abigail Gorsline, and I was diagnosed with T1D at the age of 2 years old. Right now, almost 18 years later, I am still fighting this disease. I grew up at a camp, and often times I was able to go to the nurses station to help the diabetic campers that would come. This made me want to be a nurse at a very young age. I am currently in nursing school, so that someday I will be able to encourage other kids with Diabetes, working as their nurse. I have never let diabetes stop me, and I don't ever plan on letting it, but I hope that someday we can stop Diabetes.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
