Thank you for helping me with my bar miztvah project to help me raise money to cure this disease.
Our closest family friend was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 10. This was my motivation for chosing this as my bar mitzvah project. I wanted to help in the best way I could to find a cure for this awful disease.
I have been volunteering almost every week at the JDRF offices.
Below is information Type one Diabetes.
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for 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.
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 by donating and/or walking with me on October 27 at the Art museum starting at 10:00 A.M. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
Thank you for your support!
