Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure DiabetesTeam Page!
WE ARE TEAM OLIVIA!!! We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF?s mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
Olivia was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on 6/12/2007 at the age of two. She is seven years old now and currently is using an insulin pump to help manage her diabetes. Her insulin pump site is change every two-three days. Every day is a balancing act between food, insulin, exercise, etc. We count every carbohydrate in her food to make sure the correct amount of insulin is given and her little fingers are pricked 8-10 times or more a day to make sure her blood sugar is in range.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, we will look around and see all the support we have from our friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of your efforts.
