Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
My daughter, Brooklyn, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on June 28, 2012. Although Brooklyn has taken charge of her diabetes even at the young age of eight years old, it is a continous battle to make sure Brooklyn eats properly, counts her carbs and makes sure she takes the appropriate amount of insulin. My family and friends are taking part in this year?s Walk at Holiday World on May 18, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. Please help in raising 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 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?
