Welcome to our JDRF Walk to cure diabetes team page!
March 13, 2010 is stamped in our family’s memories forever. In the Taylor family, there is life before March 13 and there is life after. We can still remember the face of our doctor coming into the room, the seriousness in her eyes and the way she said …”Well, I’m so sorry to say but….. As a parent, you never want to hear those words. That day, we learned that Bella will be tied to finger picks, injections with a needle, blood sugar lows and all the challenges that go along with this disease until a cure can be found. As a family we could sit back and just wait or we could be part of the solution. So we research and found JDRF!
JDRF is the largest organization that supports funding research for a cure. Many times they are the only funding body for studies and research needed to prevent, stop and cure this forever. As a non-profit their funding and ability to fund research is reliant on people like all of us.
Our family and dear friends support finding a cure and showing Bella how much she means to us by participating in the Nashville JDRF walk. The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.
