Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!
Dear family & friends,
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.
My friend, Spencer Faulks, is 11 years old and has been living with T1D for 4 years now. He is a super kid that loves to play baseball and football and do other things a boy his age likes to do. The only thing different for Spencer is he needs to check his blood sugar regularly, he needs to count his carbs when he eats and take his medication. Sometimes he gets tired and needs to rest but otherwise, he is very energenic! He makes friends easy and has a great sence of humor! He makes me smile when he is around and I love being with him and his family. Spencer, his dad, Woody (David), his mom, Tomi and his sweet sister, Gracie have become very special friends to me! I pray we can find a cure for T1D so Spencer and kids and adults like him can have a life without diabetes!
I don't know alot about type 1 diabetes but I'm learning all I can from Spencer.
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?
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
