I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!  I am participating in the JDRF Walk in October to raise funds to not only improve the lives of all of US affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D), but to also find a cure.  If you ask those of us with T1D, we will tell you it's difficult, painfull, very expensive, and life threatening.  And it never goes away!  We never get to take a vacation from our diabetes!

For those of you who know me, you know I hate to ask for help or support, but I am asking. I'm asking with the hope that no other child will be diagnosed with this horrible disease.  I'm asking for help in finding a cure for those of us affected and those who will be affected.  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.

Did you know that:

  • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
  • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
  • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
  • Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?

As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D.  JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.  Won't you please give to JDRF?  No contribution is too small!

Thank you for your support!
