Madeira's Mighty Marchers





We will turn Type One into Type None

Please watch my video here:

Welcome to "Madeira's Marcher"s Walk to Cure Diabetes page!

On January 15, 2013 my life was changed forever. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. It is a 24/7 disease that never gives me a break (or my parents!) I have to check my blood sugar many times a day, get insulin injections just to stay alive, and count every carb I eat! Can you imagine not being able to eat a snack after school or whenever you want?? It isn't fun! But I have learned to give myself my own insulin injections which is cool.


JDRF is so important to me and my family. They are working SO hard to find a cure for me and so many others so we can live freely. I really hope you can join my team, walk, and donate to help find a cure! No amount is too small!!


Thank you for all of your love, support, and concern.  The walk is only a few months away! I hope to see you all on November 8th for the Walk to help raise money to find a cure for me and so many others!!

Lots of love,

Madeira da Luz
