    Rosie & Jack want a cure for T1D!

Join us in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!

Welcome our Rosie and Jack Have Your Back JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!  We are getting a very late start to our fundraising this year as the Walk is NEXT weekend (May 10)!  Yikes!  I hope you will be able to help our family help other families living with 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.

We are asking for your support.  By donating to our fundraising efforts, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes, including some of my dearest friends.  

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!
