Welcome to Kylee LaRue and India Harsey JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes page!
Kylee and India are both 6th graders at Waterloo Jr. High. Kylee especially loves all sports and India is very involved with dance.
Kylee was diagnosed in 2005 at the age of 2½ in Seattle Washington. She is currently on Insulin Pump therapy and has been since the age of 5.
India was diagnosed in 4th grade and is also on a insulin pump.
Our team will be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money we raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support us and donate to our Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
Thank you for your support and please help us raise funds by making a tax deductible donation. Even the smallest amount can help.
