Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!

In the past I have supported JDRF through donations, but this year it has become personal.  As a parent it is heart-breaking to see your 2 year old diagnosed with a life-changing disease.  It is also heart-breaking to hear her ask why she has diabetes or to hear her say she doesn't want to have it.  People say it is manageable, which it is, but not without constant monitoring and trials.  We can't set Hattie's insulin dosages and forget about it.  Her insulin needs will constantly be changing as she grows.  They change with the seasons (she's more active in the summer), with illness and with changes in her routine.  Hattie doesn't get a day off and there is no cure.  Together with JDRF, we are hoping to change that.  Every night we pray for a cure.  Sometimes Hattie even prays for a cure while she's getting a shot.  Will you join us?  We would love to see the day when we don't need to worry about T1D!  Your prayers and support are greatly appreciated in our journey. 

Thank you!
