Hello All -
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
As many of you know, my nephew, Ryan, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in November of 2010. Ryan has learned many things in such a short period of time about his health and how to control his blood sugar levels. He is such a trooper...more like a Rock Star!!
This year I will be walking with Ryan and his team, Ryan's Rock Stars, to raise the funds for the millions of people living with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). The money that I raise will help the JDRF fund critical reesearch to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and Ryan's Rock Stars and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
