Putting an End to T1D, One Step at a Time

Our team, Abby's Squad is walking to end type 1 diabetes (T1D).

As many of you may know, our daughter Abby, our healthy, happy 18 year old was diagnosed with T1D this past May - just 3 weeks shy of her high school graduation!  She is currently a freshman at Texas Tech University and adjusting very well to her new normal.

When you have T1D, your body stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Managing the disease is a constant struggle that involves monitoring your blood-sugar level, administering insulin, and carefully balancing these insulin doses with your eating and activity just to stay alive.

With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.

So, will you join us and help make a cure a reality?  Your fundraising or donation not only changes lives for people with T1D but might change your own life too. 

Thank you for your donations, large or small. And most importantly thank you for your continued prayers for Abby!

Your support will help fund life-changing research and create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
