Creating a world without type 1 diabetes

 

Our Vivian was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on May 6, 2015.  I feel like I have very little recollection of the 6 months post diagnosis, yet I can recall with clarity every detail about those 3 days when we lived at Sinai Hospital.  A moment in time I will never forget.  My then, 6 year old daughter Vivian was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. To say we felt overwhelmed would be an understatement.  But a year and a half later, we have adjusted to "life with Type 1 Diabetes".  People without a T1D connection often don't understand how burdensome it can be, on both a personal and societal level.  And the financial, medical, and emotional costs of the disease are large. I'm participating in JDRF One Walk® to raise money that will help create a better future for the millions of people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D).


With T1D, a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy.  If you have T1D, you must constantly monitor your blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin through a pump, and carefully balance these insulin doses with your eating and activity.

Living with T1D means there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.

Every dollar you donate to JDRF One Walk today will help fund research for better treatments to  remove the daily burden of this disease—until  there is a world without T1D.
