†† Our team of family and friends†has formed to walk in support of my son, Jonathan, and the JDRF organization to find a cure for juvenile diabetes. Jonathan was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in August, 2010 at the age of nine. He adjusted his lifestyle into an every day routine. He is forced to check blood sugars about 15 times a day, and has learned to count carbs and eat accordingly. Through the past 3 years, Jonathan has adapted to wearing an insulin pump and overcoming the highs and lows of adjustments.
† Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
† My family and I would appreciate your support in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes on May 5th at the Lehigh Carbon Community College in hopes to find a cure for juvenile diabetes. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
