Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
On Dec 12 2012 we took our daughter Kaleigh in for a normal well child check up. But we found out she wasent so well.. We ended up in ashville at the hospital where we stayed for 3 days. When we got there her blood sugar was 546 which is way out of range. We found out that our 2 year old was type one diabetic and would be the rest of her life. It was alot to adjust to and learn and we are still learning. She has been a trooper throught it all and every day when we check her blood sugar and give her injections with every meal she still is a little trooper and hasend shed one tear! My mom is also a type 1 and has been since she was a teen. She has been my rock and my mentor and helped me so much. so for them I have joined the walk and for them I am trying to raise money for the JDRF foundation! So I hope that you will take a moment and read about diabetes and the JDRF foundation and help me raise money for the CURE! and also take a moment to decide if you wan to join our walk team. Thank You so much.
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.
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!
