Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes.
On June 23, 2011, our sweet one year old, Claire, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. It was a terrifying day that changed our lives.
We now have a smart, fun and energetic two year old. Dealing with the daily insulin shots, finger pricks and fear of hypoglycemia has been difficult and scary. But our daily challenge is to manage her blood sugar and keep her healthy until a cure for this complicated and misunderstood disease is found. Our hope is that a cure will be found before Claire is old enough to even fully understand what being a type 1 diabetic means!
We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
Thank you. Together, we will cure type 1 diabetes and its complications!
