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

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

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?
I am walking in support of my little brother who was diagnosed at the age of 10 years old. It is not fair for anyone to go through this terrifying experience.  Watching my little brothers journey has shown me that I am extremely lucky and should be thankful every day that there is nothing serious wrong with me. He has made it easier for me to experience illness because I know I will get over it. Unfortunately my little brother can't get over this horrible disease yet. I just hope that one day there will be a cure. There have been many days where I wonder how he does it.  Every day I wish that I could take this from him so he doesn't have to live with it.  
Thank you for your support!
