My name is Kristine Rowe and I am 12 years old. I am a typical kid trying to live a typical life. However, on June 26, 2012 I didn't have such a typical day. I was diagnosed with T1D and my life was changed forever. It's a very complicated disease you can treat, but never completely control.
I wear an insulin pump or give myself shots which serve as my life support. I have to prick my finger and check my blood several times a day and even in the middle of the night. It's a disease that you never outgrow or can forget about. It's there when I go to bed at night, it's there in the middle of the night, it's there when I get up in the morning, it's there when I'm at school and on fieldtrips, it's there on my birthday, it's there on our vacations, it's there on holidays -- IT'S ALWAYS THERE! T1D never sleeps or takes a vacation.
I would like to invite you to join my team "The Searchers - Searching for a Cure" along with me and my family on Saturday, September 28 at Longbranch Park, Liverpool, NY. If you are unable to join me but would still like to support me, you can donate through my web page on the JDRF website or call 598-6874 or JDRF at 453-9327.
I love photography and am selling cards ($1 each) with photos I have taken as my personal way to raise money for JDRF to help improve my life and others living with T1D if you would prefer to donate that way.
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'll be taking part in this year’s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
