Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
I used to think that only Type II had an impact upon my life as that is what a huge majority of my family deals with, however, the past few years have shown me that Type I is effecting the daily lives of some very important people around me as well, and I'm sure many that I don't even know about.
The person I think of when I think of Type II is my Mom who I lost in 2012 due to diabetic complications and when I think of Type II it's of my little buddy "Macaroni". She's kind of a "newbie" to all of this and is navigating her way through the fundamentals as well as around the real life teenager stuff that comes along with having to develop a new life style when diagnosed. She's struggled a bit but I know she's going to do great and I want to do what I can to help her and others not even HAVE to deal with it someday. Wouldn't that be great?
JDRF is working every day to change that. And, as the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research, every dollar JDRF directs toward its research plan comes from donors like you.
Please support my commitment and donate to my Walk fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
