Christopher was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of four. Although almost ten years have passed and Christopher leads a very full and active life, his days are filled with the constant challenges of managing this disease. Together, our team is walking to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin – a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure – yet. Your support of JDRF can help change that. JDRF is the one organization with the plan, influence, and ability to lessen the burden of this disease until it no longer exists.
By donating or joining our team today, you can help JDRF fund research that impacts the lives of the millions of children, adults, and families just like ours challenged by T1D every single day. With your support, we will turn Type One into Type None. Thank you for your support!
