It's hard to believe it's been 2 years (August 22) since I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I'm doing great! My parents and I have been through a lot but we've also learned a lot. What I do know is that I would love to help find a cure and live the rest of my life like any other little boy. That brings me to why I'm emailing you.
I'll be taking part in the Walk to Cure Diabetes walk just like I've done for the past 2 years. I want to help them 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. 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. Please help me to cure this terrible disease not only for myself but the millions of children with T1D and who will be diagnosed in the coming years.
My parents and I could not have made it the past 2 years without you all - Thank you for anything you can do!
