Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
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. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
