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

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page. I'm not here to tell you my own story (even though I have one) but to ask that you help end this specific brand of suffering all over the world. The JDRF has made leaps and bounds worth of progress and continues to do this with the help of people like you and me.

I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money raised will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.

Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.

JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.

Please support me and donate to my fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease, including myself. Every penny counts as a step toward a world without T1D, which is a world I want to live in.

Thank you in advance for any and all support you can give! There really are no words to quantify what it means to me and the millions of others affected daily by T1D.
