I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with my Type 1 diabetic, my son Owen.
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. Owen was diagnosed on January 6, 2011. His life changed forever on that day. Everyday is now filled with finger pokes to determine his blood glucose and constantly counting carbs to input into his pump to deliver the correct amount of insulin. Owen has embraced this disease and self monitors his blood glucose levels. I am very proud of him, as this is more than any teenager should have to take on.
JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure. Maybe some day Owen won't have to check his blood glucose levels everyday and count every carb that he eats.
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.
Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
