Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I am the team leader for "Team EVMS" and will be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).
Most of you already know that my #1 is my sister Theresa who fought a long hard battle with T1D which took her life at a young age. I walk each year in her memory and with much heaviness in my heart because we lost her to a disease that we should have found a cure for long ago !
This year however, I walk with much HOPE that we will soon find a cure for T1D.
I hope that the lives of all my special patients with T1D will be better soon. I can only hope that the hundreds of mothers with whom I have spent countless hours monitoring 288 blood sugars a day and counting every carb will some day soon put their insulin pump away and rejoice because we have found a CURE ...
I walk for all the young women who dream of getting through a pregnancy without having to worry about their blood sugars. I walk for all the women who have worked so hard to have a healthy pregnancy and deserve to kiss their diabetes "goodbye" forever.
I walk with hope because I BELIEVE in science and in the power of our efforts to make a difference!
Please join me and our EVMS team and help us fundraise for this wonderful cause. If you can't walk with us in Virginia Beach on October 19th, 2013 I hope you will consider donating funds in my name to our team for this wonderful cause so we can show the JDRF how much we care and help them reach their goal to Cure Diabetes quickly.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart in advance for helping us achieve our goal.
