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 years Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask anyone with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.

 

 

Our 8 year old son Ethan was diagnosed with T1D in the summer of 2011. It has been very difficult at times. This last summer Ethan got an insulin pump. With the insulin pump Ethan gets less shots (only one shot every 3 days), he still has to check blood sugars about 4-8 times a day. Since he has had the pump is blood sugars have been in target almost all the time and he has more energy.

  

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:

  • 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?

 

The Walk is on Saturday May 10th, 2014 at the fairgrounds in De Pere. Come and join us! Fun for the whole family!


Thank you for your support!
