Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'll be taking part in this year’s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
In August of 2012, my then 12 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. This is my daughter who had a phobia of needles (Aichmophobia). Now as ironic as it may be she has to take at a minimum of 4 shots daily. She is doing quite well with it now, thanks to the wonderful Endocrin Team at Neumurs DuPont Hospital for Children.
At the time of diagnosis it was very overwhelming for my daugher, my wife and I. Like most people, I have heard of Diabetes, know that it has something to due with bloodsugar and Insuling but beyond that since it did not effect me I never understood it. Since my daughter has been diagnosised I might be considered a very knowledgible indiividual on the subject. This is all possible because the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
During the four days at DuPont with Shannon, the endocrin team provided us with videos, literature and equipment that Shannon would need to control her Diabetes. Most of the material was made possible through the JDRF. Therefore, I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
