Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
My nephew Johnny was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a year ago at age 6. That was one of the worst days of our lives! One minute he was running around as a healthy boy and the next minute he was being rushed to the hospital at that was when his life changed dramatically. What a trooper he has been though! He takes insulin shots almost 8 times a day along with checking his blood sugar which also includes a smaller needle. That's a lot of needles for a little boy in one day. But, Johnny is one of the strongest kids I have ever met and he is doing great today.
On October 27, 2013, I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for my nephew Johnny and 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.
Please help support Johnny and others in the fight against type 1 diabetes by donating. Your donation will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Any amount will be greatly appreciated
Thank you for your support!
** 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.
