Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Many of you may know that 7 months ago I made the career jump to join EosHealth, a startup in the world of healthcare I.T. What you may not know is that the company's primary focus is diabetes care management; so my crash course in this condition has been fast and furious!
In addition to this new position I'm also very proud to have been elected to the Board of Directors for the Illinois Chapter of JDRF. This is a great opportunity to help give back to our community here in Chicago while also helping to focus on something that I've become very close to.
I will be championing the inaugural walk team for the 7wire Family and we are looking to lay the foundation for years to come!
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 I raise 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 Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
