Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
In November last year I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D). I really hate it. Everything I used to be able to do without thinking, now takes a lot of planning. Eating, exercise, playing with friends, going on a bike ride. I can still do everything and eat everything. It's just a pain. I really want to live my life free of type 1 diabetes.
Please can you help me and others like me, by making a donation to JDRF? They have been great helping me and my family. I have met some other kids like me at events they arrange and it really helps me to feel normal when I'm around other kids who also have T1D. I know my Mom & Dad are really hoping for a cure one day, but in the mean time, ways that are easier to manage this disease.
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!
