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

Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Page for Saige's Sugar Soldiers!

I am taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.

I have a personal connection to type 1 diabetes as my husband Terry and daughter Saige (8) both have T1D. At age 13, Terry was diagnosed with this life changing disease. While research and treatment have come a very long way in the past 26 years, JDRF is still searching for a CURE.

On September 27, 2012 our daughter Saige was also diagnosed with T1D. If you know Saige then you know that she is a very strong and determined little girl. As soon as she knew about the WALK she was ready to get her team lined up and wanted to make sure her daddy was included in her team name.

We would love for you to help us take the steps to stomp out T1D for Terry, Saige and Everyone living with T1D.

Simply click on the Join this Team button, make a donation and begin fundraising. It is simple, fast and fun! If you are unable Walk that day, any donations are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support!
