Welcome to My Personal Page

Let's Create A World Without T1D

I’m fundraising for JDRF because I believe in their vision of a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). One of several reasons for my 1,700 mile boat adventure to the Gulf is the opportunity it provides to raise money to help stop diabetes. I hope to raise $2 for every mile on the trip.​

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.

I've lived with T1D for nearly 45 years. It has dramatically affected my life and everything I do. Living with T1D means there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.

Your generosity will help JDRF fund life-changing breakthroughs to remove the incredible daily burden of this disease—until it no longer exists.

Please join MikoMan and I and support my fundraiser by making a tax-deductible donation today.

Thank you!
