Welcome to our personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Abby has been living with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) for almost 14 years! Believe it or not, she has poked her fingertips over fifty thousand (yes, I said 50,000) times!!! That's an average of 10 times a day, every day, all year long. You see, there is no break from Type I diabetes. And now, we have another daughter with diabetes. Josie was diagnosed last October at 9 years old. She now has a lifetime of finger pokes and insulin injections, high and low blood sugar swings, risks of seizures, comas and long term complications such as blindness and kidney failure.
But, together, we can put an end to all of this!! Please help us!
We will 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 we 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 us and donate to our 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!
