Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
Hello Friends and Family! We are so excited to get our team started for the Walk to Cure Diabetes! As you all know, Gabby was diagnosed on November 18, 2013 and since Gabby has matured and overcome so much, but her positive attitude and abilities to handle her diagnosis still does not make having T1D easy! We hope to see you all participate, donate and walk with our team to support Gabby and all others who live this struggle! Our main goal to to be able to say "Gabby HAD diabetes" and like Gabby says, "T1D can't stop me...we will kick diabetes butt" :)
We're helping JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation to JDRF, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of millions of people affected by T1D.
In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D 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 the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every donation, big or small, from donors like you, allows JDRF to fund the critical research needed to find a cure.
