Welcome to Team Amabile's JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
Our son Jack was diagnosed over a dozen years ago with type 1 diabetes (T1D) -- a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
Since that fateful day, we've been committed to JDRF's mission to remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, we'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise more than $5,000 in this year's walk -- is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Karen, Kate, Jack and I hope you'll join us for this year's walk or make a donation. Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
