Our team is walking to end type 1 diabetes (T1D).
As many of you may know, my warrior of a daughter Betty (8yo) was diagnosed with T1D at age 4 almost exactly 4 years ago. This diagnosis shook my family’s world.
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. Even with a strict regimen, people with T1D may still experience dangerously high or low blood-glucose levels that can, in extreme cases, be life-threatening.
With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope. And that’s why our team is supporting the JDRF One Walk this year.
Scientific advances are being turned into therapies that are changing the course of T1D. And together, we have the power to drive these therapies to market as quickly as we can.
We hope you will join our team or donate to our fundraising goal! By joining the JDRF One Walk, you’ll be part of the lasting footprint we’ll make for the T1D community now, and for generations to come.
Thank you for your support.
