Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Hello Everyone, It's that time of year again when we "Walk for a Cure for Erica". I wanted to let everyone know, "Team Erica" had an opportunity last week to see first hand how every dollar we raise for JDRF is distributed and we were both surprised and happy to hear that 90% of funds raise go directly to the prevention of T1D and finding a cure for T1D. We had the opportunity to speak with one of the Bio-Scientists who works directly with JDRF to find a cure. JDRF is currently very close to having an artificial pancreas that will produce insulin and monitor blood glucose for children with Type 1 Diabetes. They are also working on something called Beta Cell Encapsulation. This is a device that would be placed under the skin and again monitor blood glucose and dispense insulin for up to 6 months all without Erica having to prick her fingers 10-12 times a day. THIS IS JUST WHAT HER AND OTHERS WITH T1D NEEDS!!! Unfortunately the JDRF research programs need funding badly and cannot continue their research without our help and yours! We always knew it was important to help raise funds for JDRF but NOW we really understand just how important it is...... Please find attached both ways that you can help us raise funds and our walk donation site. We are very grateful to each and every one of you for your continuous love and support for "Team Erica". Please review our Team Page, as we are looking for Virtual Walkers this year, as well, to help in our fundraising efforts, since we were unable to have the banquet this year - we need all the help we can get!! Sincerely, Team Erica
