Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
My buddy, Johnny Bustard, has type 1 diabetes. He was diagnosed at 14 months old! His family's whole world was turned upside down as they came to grips with this. With the help of JDFR and his amazing doctors. It has been 8 months since his diagnosis and I have to tell you, this little guy is such a trooper with the most amazing personality and you would not know that he has a life threatening disease. His family has adapted, even his big sister has become mommy's helper with her brother! I would love to be able to see Johnny grow up and not have to worry if his kids will have type 1, only way to do this is to find a cure. With this walk, we are doing one step at a time to stomp out type 1!
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.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. 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!
