Almost 10 years ago when I was 7 years old I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Although the highs and lows (literally and metaphorically) of Type 1 can be tough, through JDRF I have been able to persevere through those highs and lows. JDRF is an organization that has made being Type 1 Diabetic, a thing to be proud of. Through the years, the people at JDRF have not only produced research for my life-changing devices - Insulin Pump and Constant Glucose Monitors, but have also always supported me and others who have to deal with this disease every day. Through JDRF, I know there can one day be a cure so that people like me can say we no longer have Diabetes!
As we have for the past 9 years, our family is participating in JDRF One Walk™ to raise money that will help improve the lives of millions of us living with 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.
By donating to JDRF One Walk today, you can help fund research that impacts the lives of the millions of children, adults, and families challenged by T1D every day. Together, we can create a world without T1D.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
