For my Senior Project I am raising money for JDRF. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 5. I also have several first cousins with Type 1.
I play football and baseball at Minico High School I also like to water ski, and lift weights. I live with Type 1 everyday but hope to see the cure in my lifetime.
With T1D, a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. The daily life of someone with T1D brings a multitude of challenges, including insulin injections that need to be carefully balanced with eating and activity, disruptive glucose monitoring, sleepless nights—and wishing for a tomorrow where this struggle doesn’t exist.
Your generosity will help JDRF fund life-changing breakthroughs to remove the incredible daily burden of this disease—until it no longer exists.
