Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
** A little over 2 years ago, Maylani was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in June of 2011. Recently, in June 2013, she made the switch to an insulin pump. The pump has offered more freedom and flexibility, but still wouldn't compare to a possible cure!! Maylani has maintained her spot on the Prinicpal's List for academic performance, participates on 2 basketball teams, runs the100 and 800 meter on a local track team, competes with her horse "Lil Star" in 4H, and numerous other activities, competitions, and volunteer work. Please consider joining our team as a walker, virtual walker, and/or a monetary donation in Maylani's name**
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!
