As many of you know, Lauren has type 1 diabetes, which is a serious, debilitating, and potentially life-threatening chronic disease (that unlike type 2 diabetes, is not caused or cured by dietary choices).
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), including Lauren. 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 today and support my walk for a cure?
Thank you so much for your support!
