Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
Our 10 year old daughter Faythe, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on September 4th, 2013. She is a real trooper, poking herself 10-12 times a day to check her blood sugar and manages her insulin pump like a pro. She dreams of a day when a cure is found for this disease and she doesn't have to be constantly vigilant of the carbohydrates she eats, concerned about low blood sugars or the complications of high blood sugars.
I'm joining this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D.
T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, which the body needs to get energy from food. Managing the disease requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.
JDRF is working every day to change that. And, as the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research, every dollar JDRF directs toward its research plan comes from donors like you.
Please support my commitment and donate to my Walk fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
