We are participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! On April 25 2012, our son, Braeden was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) at the age of 8. In that year, he had over 2,190 finger pricks and 1,825 insulin shots! He is now on an insulin pump. This year really hit home for us as Braeden was hospitalized due to DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis, a life threatening condition for diabetics) from flu complications. This is our 3rd year supporting this worthwhile cause, we'll be taking part again in this years Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).
If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Also, please join us on September 20, 2014 at the Kettle Moraine Ice Center in West Bend where we are hosting our 2nd Annual JDRF Skate to Cure! We again have a wonderful group of figure skaters performing and will have a wonderful selection of raffle and silent auction items! Please check out our website at http://braedensbunchbenefits.org.
