Welcome to Team Anisah JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Anisah was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in November 2011 at the tender age of 9. The shocking news came less than 2 weeks after giving birth by c-section to my youngest daughter and right after finding out my son had mononucleosis! Needless to say, we were not only shocked but overwhelmed and stressed to the max. Thankfully, after deep Prayer and Type 1 Diabetes education classes, we are learning to cope with the disease and are zealous to find a cure!
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. It is a continuous cycle of merciless blood sugar checks and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Therefore, by joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll 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.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
