Our daughter Lauren’s diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes earlier this year came as a complete shock. As we learn to live life in this new reality, we also want to help others fighting this terrible disease and are doing so November 11, at the JDRF One Walk. Our team is walking to create a world without Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).
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.
With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.
By donating or joining our JDRF One Walk® team today, you’ll support research for life-changing breakthroughs to make it safer and easier to live with T1D, until we find a cure.
Thank you for your support.
