Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
My daughter Tiarah was diagnosis with Diabetes Type 1 on her 11th birthday.The week prior to this day she was drinking excessively and going to the bathroom more than usual.I called the doctor and unfortunately the only appointment available was on Friday, her birthday. We were in the ER for most of the day.She cried and cried.My heart broke into pieces because this pain I could not take away.So as mother I accept yet another duty.I will do my part by supporting the cause to find a cure for Diabetes Type 1 but I also need your help.
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
