Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page. Team ANISAH!!!
Anisah was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in November 2011 at the tender age of 9. The shocking news came less than 2 weeks after giving birth by c-section to my youngest daughter and right after finding out my son had mononucleosis! Needless to say, we were not only shocked but overwhelmed and stressed to the max. Thankfully, after deep Prayer and Type 1 Diabetes education classes, we are learning to cope with the disease and are zealous to find a cure!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (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.
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.
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.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
Montia, Sedrick & Anisah
