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

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

This is our first year walking with JDRF.  Abby was dignaosed March 29th 2013- just over a year ago.  While we were getting use to our new "normal", just a month "in" with countless finger pokes to test blood sugar, 4 shots a day, and worry that can not be measured- Tanner was diagnosed 5/5/13.  While our lives are forever changed- our kids prove that nothing can stop them.  We pray daily for a cure- so that one day Tanner & Abby can say- "I USE to have Type 1"- and with YOUR support to JDRF that can become a reality.  Please be part of it and donate today.  Every bit helps.  Abby & Tanner Thank you!!!

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 millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.

Thank you for your support!
