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 am walking for a cure for my Grandson Sam and the millions of others 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.

Sam was very thirsty and going to the restroom a lot in March his face was always flush. So on my birthday 3/25/2013 I took him to the doctor to find out what was wrong. Thats when they told us he had Type 1 diabetes. My goal is to raise money to help find a cure that's my birthday gift  (to help in the fight to cure Type1 diabetes).

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!
