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) as well as for my duaghter, Maura. 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.Maura was diagnosed at age 4. It was a shock to Maura, myself, Paul, and our family and friends. Diabetes is now a way of life for our family. It is something we live, eat, breath, and sleep with. Maura is an amazing girl - she will be the first to tell you how she hates diabetes; but no matter what, she perseveres who keeps her head high through it all. 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?Thank you for your support!
