Hello! We are Wyatt's Warriors! On October 18th, 2014 we will be walking in JDRF's One Walk for the second year in a row. Wyatt was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on May 23rd, 2012, at the age of 3. His diagnoses has changed our lives forever.
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 no cure.
Warning Signs of Type 1 Diabetes include the following...
*Sudden Vision Changes
*Ketones (Sugar in the Urine)
*Fruity or Wine Smelling Breath
*Sudden Weight Loss
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.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
