Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
On 7/27/2010 our daughter Caitlyn was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 5. Since this day every day has been a challenge. The constant lows and highs. The countless finger pricks, injections and constant worry. Caitlyn also wears a Continuous Glucose Monitor due to unawareness of lows, which is very scary.
My child did nothing wrong. She didn't eat the wrong thing or drink the wrong drink she was born this way. Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disorder and there is NO CURE. But we are fighting! We will not give up! Please join us in our fight for a cure.
We are 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.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. We are asking for your support. Now more than ever, EACH of us can make a real difference in the lives of people with type 1 diabetes.
Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation and begin fundraising. It's simple, fast and fun!
Thank you for your support and see you on Walk day!
