Join Nate's Knights in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!† I'll be taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).† If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening.† And they know it never goes away.

A little about my son Nathan (now 17), he was diagnosed when he was 7yrs old, just before Halloween (thank goodness we found out before)! He has been to JDRF Camp Hertko Hollow every year since and has also been a part of the Walk to Cure each year since. He has been a part of the JDRF advertising to raise awareness, supported bikers in the Bike for a Cure, and also been a JDRF Youth Ambassador for several years. He was a keynote speaker speaker at the JDRF Gala when he was 11yrs old, speaking in front of a room of thousands to raise awareness and support for the cause. He has been an advocate to help find curefor Juvenile Diabetes, since day one.... we hope you choose to join in our efforts, Thank you in advance for taking time to read and raise awareness!

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.

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 as generously as possible?

Thank you for your support! Nathan and Family!
