Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
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.
Honestly, I never really knew much about T1D growing up, or Diabetes in general, until my Mom was diagnosed with T1D when I was 13. I remember worrying about my Mom, wondering how this would affect her life. For many of you who know my mom, she is an incredible woman, and this was merely a bump in the road for her, she adjusted and kept moving forward. I was talking with one of my brother's recently, and we were discussing how we never even think of my Mom as having T1D, she is active, healthy, strong, and how can someone who is all of those things need medicine not just daily, but hourly?
I am walking & running for my Mums, because she is my best friend, my inspiration, and my role model.
Please donate to help find a cure for people like my Mom, who have to deal with this disease and the potential threats it poses.
Thank you for your support!
