I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'll be walking this year to raise funds to help improve the lives of ALL people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). As some of you may know, I'm a registered nurse and I've been living with (T1D) for over 20 years now. As a professional and someone who has been directly impacted by this disease, I know how hard it can be to live with diabetes and worry about the horrific complications one can suffer, even with the best control. I'm looking forward to a future where T1D is no more and I believe the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is a fundamental organization that will help make this wish possible.
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, including my very own! Here are some fun facts for you...
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 5 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?
Thank you for your support!
