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

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! 

I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise 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.

I am walking for my son Brody.  He was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on July 21, 2013, at the young age of 15 months old.  We have no family history of diabetes and it came as a total shock to my husband and I.  We are determined to do everything we can to give our boy an amazing life regardless of this disease.  Please, help us find a cure!

It has been a rough journey so far, but Brody is amazing! He is finally on his insulin pump, and it is so great to be able to get him the small doses he needs! His numbers are still a little high, but much better than they were on the shots, and less all over the place!

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?

Thank you for your support!
