Welcome to our Team Page!
As you all know, in the month of December 2008 I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Diabetes was formally known as juvenile diabetes because it?s usually diagnosed in children and young adults. In this disease the pancreas does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugars and foods into energy. Therefore people with type 1 have to do multiple injections per day, or have insulin delivered through a pump.
This disease changed my life forever and I hope that in my lifetime I will see a cure for this disease. If not a cure, at least a better way to manage the disease that would eliminate the effects the disease can have long term. But JDRF is working towards finding a cure for diabetes.
We will be walking on February 23rd, 2013, and we hope to you join us there!
