Welcome to Laura Watson's Personal Page

Did you know...

  • Type I Diabetes generally affects children up to age 18 (although I was diagnosed when I was 23).
  • Insulin is required to treat Type I Diabetes (at one point, I was taking 3 or more injections per day).
  • Insulin Pumps can be used instead of these injections (I wear mine 24/7, but still have to deal with inserting a needle 1-2 times per week).
  • Blood testing is required on a daily basis (I don't test as often as I should, but my goal is 4 times a day).
  • Diabetes is a life threatening disease that can cause many complications such as blindness, heart disease, amputations, and kidney failure (I am thankful that I haven't had any related symptoms. I visit my endocrinologist 4 times a year to monitor my health).
  • There is no cure for Type I Diabetes (I've had it for almost half my life- I know, it's a LONG time).

So, I'm obviously very intested in supporting research to find a cure for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.

I'm pleased to announce that I have created a Team for Lamppost Pizza and we will be supporting JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes again this year!  Your donation to JDRF can contribute to making a cure a reality (and I'd be especially grateful)!!!

Thank you for your support!
