Hi and Welcome to my JDRF fundraising page!
My pancreas needs your help. You see, 20 years ago this month my pancreas was diagnosed under attack. The assailant? My immune system. Turns out, my immune system had been swayed to turn on its own kind and therefore I've been living with type 1 diabetes for the most of my life. The reasons for this attack are unknown however, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is getting closer and closer to figuring out why and finding a cure.
This is where YOU come in.
My pancreas and I, along with millions of others need your help. How can you help? Make a donation. Your donation is tax deductible and will make a difference in so many lives!
I work hard, so HARD at taking care of my self but multiple daily finger pricks, wearing an insulin pump 24 hours a day, emergency shots, carbohydrate counting, and high and low blood sugars are still a reality. Twenty-four hours a day I hyper-analyzing everything I eat and every bit of activity, all in a somewhat futile effort to keep my blood sugar levels in the target range. I do the best that I can but even all of my hard work isn?t a substitute for having a working pancreas, which means I am still at risk for long-term complications - everything from blindness to heart disease, to kidney disease. I am happy to say, after living with this disease for 20 years, I am fortunate to not suffer from any major complications thus far.
I will not let diabetes stop me and I will live to see a cure. Please donate. Anything, seriously, anything helps!
Thank you so much for supporting me and helping JDRF find a cure!
Forever and ever grateful,
Jennifer and her pancreas
