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

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

Hi everyone.

 I’m writing to ask for your support for a very special goal—to improve the lives of every person affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D), just like our very own Nina.

 I just registered for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes and accepted the challenge to raise money for JDRF, the largest nongovernmental funder of type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The Walk raises funds, awareness, and hope for the millions of people living with and affected by T1D, a serious autoimmune disease.


As most of you know, our sweet Nina was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on July 3rd, 2013. It’s a day we will never forget!

 26 million Americans have diabetes and only 3 million have Type 1.  85% of people living with T1D are adults and 15% are children!

With that being said, I’m asking for you to donate what you can to help find a cure and raise awareness of this disease.


This years walk takes place September 21, 2014. You can come join us or donate or both! Whatever you’re able to do will help not only Nina but every other person out there affected by this serious disease.

Please help me reach my personal fundraising goal of $2,000.00 by visiting my fundraising page and making an online donation. Donating is quick, easy and secure! However, if you prefer, you can mail your contribution to the address listed below. Make your gift payable to JDRF, and please put my name in the memo field.
