Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF?s mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.
Some of you know our story, while others do not. We have found that telling Maddy's story to our family and friends has been a great source of support for us all. As we get ready to walk for the Juvenile Diabetes Reasearch Fund this September I feel it is imperative to share her story again and update you on our progress.
On June 7, 2011 our family was changed forever. Madison was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. And while several members of our family live with Type 2 diabetes we had no idea just how much our lives were about to change. Over the past two yeara Maddy has had to deal with endless needle sticks, my constant questioning about how she feels, insulin shots, site changes, lots of doctors appointments, midnight checks, and my constant worrying. While we haven't had to physically have each needle stick, shot, or site change, our family has emotionally felt them all.
Maddy continues to receive insulin pump therapy and continues to be doing well. We are so grateful that this seems to be working. We are indeed very blessed. She continues to amaze me!
When Maddy was first diagnosed she became very interested in finding out how we could educate people about Type 1 diabetes and raise money for research. This has continued to be very important to Maddy. Because we aren't just walking for Maddy, we are walking for a cure!
