Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
I was diagnosed with T1D last October suddenly. I had never heard of kids with diabetes until then. I have learned so much about what it takes for me to live with this disease. I have to prick my finger for blood glucose readings many times every day. I hate shots like any other kid and now I have to take them on a regular basis. My family, teachers and friends encourage me to keep the faith for my healing. I believe that there will be a cure in my lifetime! I'm 12 years old now and until then, I will manage it as best as I can.
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!
