I'm walking to acknowledge the burden and suffering of a life with t1d

I'm participating in JDRF One Walk® to raise money to transform the lives of the millions of people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D).

When you have T1D, your body stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Even with the most vigilant disease management, a significant portion of your day will be spent with high or low blood-sugar levels, which can lead to unpleasant short-term side effects and even long-term complications like kidney failure, heart attack and blindness.

With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope and there are ways to ease the burden.

You’re part of that hope. By donating you can support life-changing research that helps people with T1D live healthier and longer despite the challenges of this burden.  Things like insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors and more affordable insulin!  But there is much left to do!  Your donation to JDRF address that need.

I want to address the burden of living with diabetes.  My company, Dragonfly Lights, LLC is dedicated to addressing the psychosocial aspect of living with a chronic illness (you know, the day to day burdens).  We provide programs such as Dealing With YOUR Diabetes to help people develop resilience and other coping skills that make life so much easier!
