Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
In August of this past year, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It has changed my life and I want to do my part to help find a cure for myself and all others with this disease. Everyday I have to count every single carbohydrate that I eat, test my blood sugar 5-10 times per day, and get insulin shots atleast 3 times per day. I can still do everything I want to do with my life but wouldn't it be great if no one had to deal with diseases like this?! This is my chance to help and I am asking you to help by either donating to my team or even better, joining my team and help raise awareness and money toward a cure!!
I'm joining this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) like me! The money I raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D.
T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, which the body needs to get energy from food. Managing the disease requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.
JDRF is working every day to change that. And, as the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research, every dollar JDRF directs toward its research plan comes from donors like you.
Please support my commitment and donate to my Walk fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for me and the millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
