Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
As most of you know, my little cousin Lauren was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when she was just 4 years old. Now at the ripe age of 11, Lauren who has Celiac Disease as well, monitors her T1D, Gluten Free, and recently Dairy Free diet with the ease and grace of a responsible adult.
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.
I will be walking with Lauren on October 6th to help cure Type 1 Diabetes. Please support me by signing up to walk or donate, or check out the fantastic shirts we designed and order one by emailing me your name and shirt size to help us reach our fundraising goal!
Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
Thank you for your support!
