Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
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.
I am walking for my son Brandon and others like him who are affected by T1D. Brandon is an otherwise healthy, happy and active 8 year old who enjoys playing baseball, football, swimming, fishing and camping. It is through the efforts of many wonderful doctors, nurses and organizations such as JDRF that will allow him to have a long, fun-filled, healthy and happy life.
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.
Did you know that:
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.
This year’s walk takes place on September 29th. 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. Even as little as $5 can make a difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
