Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
On Thursday, October 17, 2013, our life changed forever with one phone call...Cole was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Late that evening we made our way to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and spent the next three days learning more about the disease, going through classes, learning to test blood sugars and give insulin shots and beginning a new chapter in our lives.
This year, our family will be taking part in the Walk to CURE Diabetes 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 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?
This is a life changing disease, please support my family and I as we raise funds and walk to find a cure!
Thank you for your support!
