Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'm Nick and I've been living with Type 1 Diabetes since I was 8 years old. I'm 11 now and have learned to test my blood sugar level and give myself insulin every day at mealtime, activity time, and when I'm high (hyperglycemic). It's not a fun thing at all.
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. The walk and 5K are on Sunday October 27, 2013.
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.
Please support me 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!
