I'm participating in Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes!

Natalie and I

    Welcome to my personal JDRF Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes fundraising page! 

    Unfortunately, my sister died from the disease in 2007.  I miss her severely. Doing this race helps.

    Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas.  While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. 

    The goal of JDRF is to improve the lives of every person affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D.  More than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures go directly to T1D research.

    Thank you for your support!
