Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'll be taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
As you may know, my son, Kelby, was diagnosed on September 21, 2011 as being T1D. It was such a jolt to us all. He of course, being the trooper he is, took it all in stride and was starting to test himself and help count his carbohydrates before we even left the hospital. Since then, he has learned to inject his own insulin and is trying to teach his classmates about being diabetic. He knows he has to have certain things with him where ever he goes: Gatorade, glucose tabs, meat sticks, his testing supplies, his insulin, his bracelet, and his glucagon. He is still living a full active life by playing baseball, swimming in the pool and playing hockey. He is still the boy at heart and making every day count. He also knows this this is something he will have to manage closely the rest of his life. Unless we find a cure, this will be part of his every day life.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
