    He is our Number One!

We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!

The question given to us from JDRF is "Who is your #1?"   IAN is our number one!!  IAN is the reason we are walking, he is our hero!  Since diagnosis in August he has been on a full-out research mission to help find a cure for Type 1 and JDRF is working to make that happen!  He is our hero because everyday without complaints he pricks his finger up to 10 TIMES PER DAY, takes insulin shots approximatley 5 TIMES PER DAY, reads every label, calculates his ratio and keeps on top of his high and low blood sugar trends...all while keeping up with classwork, homework, tap and family time!  Some days are just harder than others and although he calls mom from school with "crazy" high numbers and then "crazy" low numbers causing him to throw up, his attitude remains positive despite the fear I hear in his voice.  He is our family's #1 and we hope you'll consider donating to our Team Ian to hopefully turn Type 1 into Type NONE! 


We're helping JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease like Ian. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation to JDRF, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of millions of people affected by T1D.

In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.

JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every donation, big or small, from donors like you, allows JDRF to fund the critical research needed to find a cure.
