March 19, 2018 our lives changed forever. Our lovable and sweet, headstrong and sassy 4 year old was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Never would we have imagined what our little girls life would now entail. We quickly learned that the things our bodies do, without us even realizing, would have to be done by us now, outside of her little body to keep her alive. No child deserves this, no person deserves this and no parent should have to worry every second that they are doing everything they can to keep their child alive. Gracie checks her blood sugar by poking her tiny finger many times a day and receives multiple shots every day. All we can hope for is a cure.
Please join us to walk with our Gracie to show her how very loved she is.
No donation is necessary to walk and we will provide a special t shirt to show her support. All donations, 100%, go directly to help find a cure for this cruel disease.
When you have T1D, your body stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Managing the disease is a constant struggle that involves monitoring your blood-sugar level, administering insulin, and carefully balancing these insulin doses with your eating and activity just to stay alive.
With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.
So, will you join us? Your fundraising or donation not only changes lives for people with T1D but joining JDRF One Walk will change your own life. The inspiration and fun you experience on that day will stick with you, and the pride you can take for your role will last a lifetime.
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).
