I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!  I'll be taking part in this year’s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) but more specifically, the life of my son Connor who, diagnosed at age 3, has been dealing with diabetes for the better part of his life.

If you ask Connor about his diabetes, he will tell you it is difficult and sometimes life threatening.  What even is more scary for him, is that he knows it will never go away.

So, I am asking for your support.  Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts.  By doing so, you can help make a difference for millions of people like Connor, living with type 1 diabetes.

Did you know that:

  • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
  • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
  • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
  • Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?

As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D.  JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.  Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?

Thank you for your support!
