Putting an end to T1D, one step at a time

Dear Family, Friends, Neighbors, Vendors,

Since 2002 Team Euphemia Haye has been walking to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).  We know that you have many options when it comes to what charity you are going to support.  We would feel fortunate if you choose to support JDRF.  As you know, JDRF is the leading global organization focused on T1D research.  As we have said so many times before, "we walk for our daughter, Kate, nephews, and others like them." JDRF's goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from peoples lives until we achieve a world without T1D.

Try to imagine.

When you have T1D, your pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. This means you must constantly monitor your blood-sugar level, administer insulin, and carefully balance these insulin doses with your eating and activity just to stay alive.  Blood sugar that is too low and you will go unconscious and die.  Too high, organs and nerve pathways are negatively affected with kidney, heart, and brain function compromised,  neuropathy and even amputation.

With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure.  But there is hope.  PLEASE BECOME A TEAM MEMBER OR A DONOR.   Too, we would wish that each person who walks with Team Euphemia Haye, Sat. May 11, 2019 contribute $125. or more.  Please ask your friends, family, associates to donate to you for the walk. You will be most pleasantly surprised, and you will become a very important factor in reaching the goal of a cure for diabetes. Thank you in advance for your efforts.
