Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our nationwide goal of raising $94 million.
On March 24, 2008, I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) which is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. I spent 5 days in the hospital and learned how to check my blood sugar 8-10 times a day, count carbohydrates and calculate how much insulin to give. My mom and dad learned how to give me shots 4-6 times per day.
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 am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
