Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! 

September 29 my family will be joining our friends who have a 4th grade daughter, Lili, who was diagnosed with Juvenile diabetes when she was in kindergarden. We want to help & support them so that a cure can be found so that when we do normal fun family activities with Lili & her siblings, Lili doesn't have to get her finger pricked several times a day & fear that the roller coaster ride created too much adreneline & threw her numbers all out of kilter. We are walking so that Lori, Lili's mom, can sleep a full night and not have to check her daughters blood a couple times a night for fear she is going into a coma. Please help me help them & all the other kids in the same situation. 

I'll 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 I 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 me and donate to my 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!
