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

Once again, our family is participating in the JDRF Walk at Holiday World.  We're asking you to partner with us by donating to our team.  Type 1 diabetes is a big part of our daily life.  When Joanna was diagnosed at age 7 (2008), our lives were turned upside down.  Most people hate shots and avoid them as much as possible.  I estimate Joanna's had 1,300 shots, 600 pump changes (long needle), and 16,000 fingerpokes since diagnosis.  I (Jennifer) was diagnosed in 2012.  Since 2012, I estimate I've had 2,180 shots and 3,800 fingerpokes.  I have more shots given than Joanna because I haven't changed to a pump.
 
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure trying to turn type 1 into type NONE.  And that is what we hope for Joanna and me, a life without shots or finger pokes.  We participate in the Holiday World walk to help raise money for research and for a cure.  Please help us!
 
For 2014, we've decided to truly show our Joanna's Bananas spirit by having a contest between me and John.  Whoever raises more money for JDRF will wear a Banana costume!!  :)

Thank you for your support!
