Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! (Please click on the Team link to the right and find Kendra's name if you would like to make a donation. We are hoping to raise all donations in her name.)
Our daughter, Kendra was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last Memorial day. She has shown incredible stregnth and grace for a ten year old in dealing with this disease. Kendra is an athlete and plays ice hocky and soccer! She is a straight A student and wonderful sister to five. She amazes us everyday! Help us amaze her by raising money in her name in this fight for a cure.
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 Kendra and donate to her Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease including our daughter Kendra.
Thank you for your support!
