This will be my 5th year taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we raise money to find a cure. Please consider joining TEAM RILEY!
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
I was diagnosed in January of 2010. Since then, I have been checking my blood sugar multiple times a day. I began by taking 4-5 insulin shots every day but now I have an insulin pump that I change every 3 days. Although I haven't let type 1 diabetes slow me down, it would be awesome to find a cure! I would love it if you would either sponsor me and my team for the walk OR better yet, join me and my team! Wouldn't it be great if we funded the reasearch that would find a cure for me and all the other people with type 1 diabetes in the world?
