Hello Champions For A Cure!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D. Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
ALERT - T-shirts will be at my house on Friday, October 18!
