Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
In December 2012, just one week before Christmas, our little girl, Mya, was diagnosed with T1D. Since then, she has endured at least 4 injections a day and countless finger pricks to check her blood glucose levels. She just got her first insulin pump last week and while we are hoping for the best, we are praying for a cure to be found soon! She has been a real trooper through it all and we are so very proud of her.
We are walking for the millions of people with this disease, but most importantly, our little girl.
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (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, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is 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.
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 money for JDRF and to 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.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising. Please help Mya and our team!
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
