My name is Trenton and I am 9 years old. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetis on September 20, 2013. I want to first thank God for my heath and family. My family and my church in Florida prays for me to have a complete healing in my body, and yes I do believe that God wants to heal my body. I have faith that God has big plans for my life and this disease will not be what defines me.
I want to thank JDRF for all the helpfull information that my family came home from the hospital with. Also JDRF gave my mom alot of supplies to get started as well as books, and information. This is are way of saying thankyou for all the reasearch and supplies they make available to families just like ours.
I love to play and be outdoors all the time. I like to ride my bike, skateboard and swim. When I get older I want to sing and play drums in a band like my uncles. I also want to play lacrosse and football when I get old enough. I love Jesus and I know he is with me.
Thank you to all those who have prayed for me, visited me in the hospiatal, and sent me cards.
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
