Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'll be taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
On Valentine's Day in 2003, I was diagnosed with Type I diabetes. I was in the hospital for three days as my family and I learned more about the disease and how to control my blood sugar. It was scary for everyone. Fortunately, my family and I with the help of our support team of doctors do a good job in controlling my blood sugar to keep me healthy. We got involved with JDRF as we want to help others to prevent, control and cure T1D!!!!
T1D is an auto-immune disease. Over 80% of the funds that the JDRF raises goes for research to prevent, control, treat and cure this disease; this research also helps other auto-immune diseases.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
Alex Bitterman and family
