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

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

My nephew , Jayden, was diagnosed at age 3. He is the first in our family to be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes so when the doctor first told us he had diabetes we were in shock. We definetly did not expect this from him. It was a big change in his life and ours also. Everyday we check his blood sugar about 4-5 times a day. We give him 4 shots of insulin. We want to find a cure for this disease so he can be as normal as you.

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.

Please support my nephew and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. 

Thank you for your support!
