I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!

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.

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.

I've been living and dealing with diabetes for 17 years and I hope to find a cure so that when I someday have children of my own, I don't have to worry about them having to deal with this disease.

Did you know that:

  • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
  • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
  • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
  • Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?

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!
