Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
I am now 15 years old and going into sophomore year at Arrowhead High School in Hartland. I was diagnosed with diabetes on February 8th, 2010. It has been over 3 and half years since I was diagnosed. I have had an insulin pump for almost two years now. I started on the new omnipod pump in the beginning of August. The new omnipod is smaller, thinner, and lighter compared to the old omnipod that I was using. This is going to be my 4th time in doing the Walk to Cure Diabetes at Milwaukee County Zoo. It is a fun day at the zoo and I hope you can join me and my team in the walk to help find a cure in type one diabetes.
