Welcome to TJ's JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
We'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). As a family, we would like to commit to doing this Walk every year of TJ's life. We want it to be a tradition to help him stay active and fully participate in the Help for the Cure.
8% of the U.S. population is living with Type 1 Diabetes. The money we 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. There have been many miraculous advances in the treatment and reversal of diabetes recently. It is an exciting time!
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, yet.
That's where we come in! By helping JDRF.
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, including TJ.
Thank you for your support, love and prayers!
