Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
As some of you may know, Spencer was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes almost 1 year ago. It has been a roller coaster ride to say the least. Through it all, he continues to be one of the coolest kids I know and handles his new "normal" in stride. We've changed our daily routine to accomodate the demands of Type 1 Diabetes, but we look forward to a future without lancing his fingers 10 or more times a day, a future with no injections and with no medical devices. All those with Type 1 Diabetes deserve to be able to let go of the fear: the fear that a severely low blood sugar will take their lives without notice and the fear that those highs will result in retinopathy, organ damage and a whole host of other issues.
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.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
