Welcome to Ring Around the Josey's Team Page!
On September 29, 2010 my life changed forever. What my parents thought would be a quick doctor's visit, turned into a lifetime of blood sugar checks, carbohydrate counting and insulin, insulin, insulin. Even though being told I had diabetes didn't make any sense to me, I was old enough to understand that the needles and constant finger pricks hurt. I was old enough to realize I was suddenly being awoken during the night, being asked "how do you feel" when I played and hearing the word "diabetes" all of the time. Over the past two years, I have learned so much about this disease I have. I am able to check my own sugar, I have pretty pink insulin pump and I can even tell when I am "just not feeling right". I have also been told that one day there could be a cure and I can live a life diabetes free. That is why I am reaching out to you...
JDRF is taking steps to achieve its goal of improving the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. By joining Team Ring Around Our Josey and making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.
We are motivated by the courage and perseverance of those facing the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes - they are the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, to achieve more. We challenge ourselves to make a real difference in the lives of those with T1D.
Every day I am reminded how blessed and loved I am especially with this difficult disease. Watching our team grow each year reminds me how loved and supported I am by so many amazing people. I hope to see you on walk day and if you cannot join us, keep on praying with me. I will never give up hope for a cure.
