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!!
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).
