Welcome to our personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
As many of you know JDRF is near and dear to my heart. My mother Elizabeth was diagnosed with T1D as a young girl and lost her fight tragically at the age of 37. She was a beautiful soul who cared more for others than she did of herself. She had a radiance about her and a smile that could light up a room. Everyone who knew her was truly blessed... I know I was. I only had her for 14 years and I am saddened at the thought my children will never know the best grandma ever!
This is the big picture-Diabetes doesn't just affect the patient. It truly is a family affair and can potentially effect generations. And since T1D primarily affects children won't you please do what you can to help cure this devastating disease? We are so close to a cure.
Liz, Nick, and I will 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 We 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 us donate to our Walk fundraising campaign-join our team!! 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!
Rachael, Liz, and Nick
