As of November 2018 of Senior Year, I have been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I now join a community that includes my parents, Lauren and Joe, my Uncle Robert, and millions of others throughout the world. 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. This effort is intensified throughout participating on the Men's Lacrosse Team at Providence College.
With Senior Day approaching this Saturday, April 27th (vs. Villanova), please help the Providence College Men's Lacrosse Team and I raise money to envision a world without Type 1 Diabetes.
Your generosity will help JDRF fund life-changing breakthroughs to remove the incredible daily burden of this disease—until it no longer exists.
Please support my fundraiser by making a donation today.
