Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
We are the "HAWAIABETICS", three friends who attend Bellarmine, but were connected to one another years ago through JDRF. Megan-diagnosed at 20 months, Drew-diagnosed at age 5, and Molly-diagnosed at age 6. Now we are all sophomores in high school and still fighting the battle every day. Fluctuating blood sugars, constant finger pokes, packing medical supplies everywhere we go, the fear of long term complications....that part hasn't changed for us since we were diagnosed as children. What has changed is the technology that makes our disease more managable. All three of us wear insulin pumps, and while this is far from a cure, it beats daily injections. We need your continued support so that research will keep moving along at a steady pace,
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.
