I’m fundraising for JDRF because I believe in their vision of a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
I was diagnosed with T1D when I was just 2 years old. I can't remember a time without finger sticks, shots, pump site changes, and counting carbs. I don't often get to sleep through the night--one of my parents usually wakes me up to eat because my blood sugar is too low or give myself insulin because it's too high and there are many days when I just don't feel good.
Living with T1D means there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope. I'm climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in August, 2019 to prove that T1D can't stop me and to raise money to help fund research that will find a cure.
Your generosity will help JDRF fund life-changing breakthroughs to remove the incredible daily burden of this disease—until it no longer exists.
