As many of you know, Emma and Anna have been dealing with type-1 diabetes, collectively, for over 19 years now. Emma, now 13 years old, was diagnosed just after her 3rd birthday. Anna, now 11 years old, was diagnosed just after her 2nd birthday. Together they have done roughly 42,000 finger pokes to test their blood sugars, they had done 1,600 shots in the few months they were on shots before they both went on insulin pumps, and have changed their pump sites approximately 2,200 times. We never stop thinking about diabetes....NEVER. It is on our minds 24-hours a day, 365 days per year. None of us ever gets a break from it. And while significant strides have been made in diabetes care, insulin is not a cure, merely life support. We are passionate about finding a cure to free them from these bonds in the future and you can help!!
Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF?s mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.
