We are adults diagnosed
as small children, as adolescents, as young adults, as middle-age adults, as
senior adults; We are parents who cared for our AT1's when they were young and
now love them as they manage Type 1 diabetes as adults; We are friends and
significant others of an AT1 still learning the impact it has on their life; We
are spouses of our AT1 learning to see the signs of low or high blood sugar and
understanding the toll it takes on our AT1's daily life; We are children of our
AT1 who all look forward to the day when we are Team Adult Type NONE!
Together we're taking
steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D)
from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By
joining our One Walk™ (formerly JDRF
Walk to Cure Diabetes) team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll
raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a
life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops
producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and
changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is
JDRF is the only
global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every
dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've
set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the
daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of
blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
