When I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 9, JDRF (then JDF) provided me with a support network that gave me real-life examples of people with diabetes who were leading rich lives in spite of a difficult to manage chronic disease. When I participated in my first Walk to Cure Diabetes, I got an amazing amount of support from friends and family across the country who wanted to help not just me but the millions of other people with Type 1. After that first Walk, I promised myself to walk every year until there was a cure.
I think 9-year-old me would be okay with the fact that I'm running this year.
JDRF uses more than 80 cents of every dollar donated to directly fund research to help
Type 1 diabetes. Please consider supporting this organization in their goal to raise $1.5 million to fund research to help the millions of people with Type 1.
Thank you for your support!
