Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
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.
I was initially diagnosed as a type 1.5 (Latent autoimmune form of diabetes in adults) at age 25. At age 29, my children lost their father in Afghanistan. For me, the research, treatments, and advancements made in diabetes related to the treatment and care of type 1 diabetics are significant to me. For me, I want to see my children grow up. I don't want them to lose another parent at such a young age.
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!
