We walk for Abby & Tanner - and to help turn Type1 into Type NONE!!
We will turn Type One into Type None
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
This is our first year walking with JDRF. Abby was dignaosed March 29th 2013- just over a year ago. While we were getting use to our new "normal", just a month "in" with countless finger pokes to test blood sugar, 4 shots a day, and worry that can not be measured- Tanner was diagnosed 5/5/13. While our lives are forever changed- our kids prove that nothing can stop them. We pray daily for a cure- so that one day Tanner & Abby can say- "I USE to have Type 1"- and with YOUR support to JDRF that can become a reality. Please be part of it and donate today. Every bit helps. Abby & Tanner Thank you!!!
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.
