Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
As many of your know, our son Jacob was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) on October 6, 2012. Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
So on October 6, 2013, the one-year anniversary of Jacob's diagnosis, we're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Will you help make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button and start fundraising. Or, if you're not able to join us on Walk day, please make a donation to support Team Super Jake!
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
Love, the Ellens family
