Imagine All The People... A World Without Diabetes... A Cure For Our Loved Ones
Welcome to Kayden's Superheroes Team Page for the Walk for a Cure for Juvenile Diabetes!
I am walking for my son Kayden, who is now 5. Kayden was diagnosed on March 4, 2011 in a scary string of events. Kayden narrowly escaped death when he was diagnosed, as he was in Diabetic Ketoacidosis coming into the Emergency Room. It was a long night that I pray nobody has to ever relive. Unfortunately all to many parents go through this every day. And it is becoming more of a problem in small children. It is my hopes that we raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and in our children's lifetime, they find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
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. It affects them in many ways, and affects the entire family unit.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Kayden and many other children need your help! 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, and be someone's superhero today?
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
