Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Type 1 Diabetes fundraising page!
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in college, after years of being sick and not knowing why. Auto-immune diseases, and particularly type 1, affect people in every aspect of life, a fact of which I've found most people to be unaware. It has been a rough road, traversing with this disease, but I hold onto hope for a better future.
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.
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, like me, affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
