I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!

Hi!

I'll be taking part in this year’s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).  I won't get the chance to walk as I'll be busy making sure the 2014 Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes goes off without a hitch but I hope you will still help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes. 

Did you know that:

  • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
  • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
  • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
  • Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?

As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D.  JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.  Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?


Thank you for your support!
