Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!  I'll be taking part in this year’s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people, like me, affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).  If you ask me about T1D, I will tell you it is difficult and life threatening.  I check my blood at least 8-10 times a day.  Sometimes I miss out on part of recess or PE because my blood sugar is too low to participate.  What I dislike the most, though, is getting woken up in the middle of the night because my blood sugar has dropped and I have to then eat something.  This won't change or go away until there is a cure.  I cannot wait for the day when it is announced they have found a cure for T1D!

I am asking for your support in helping to find this cure.  Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts.  By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.

Did you know that:

  • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
  • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
  • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
  • As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D?

Since my diagnosis over 2 years ago, I have had awesome support from my family and friends.  It has made things so much easier for me and I am so grateful.  Thank you for your continued support!
