BENEFITING: Beyond Type 1
ORGANIZER: Beyond Type 1
My life was changed forever when I was traveling across Europe when I had to be taken to the hospital to then be diagnosed with the uncurable Type 1 Diabetes. Just like every other Type 1 Diabetic, I spend my days pricking my finger to test my blood sugars 10+ times a day, inject an insulin filled syringe into my body 6+ times a day, and have to deal with the constant rollercoaster of highs and lows that the disease brings. However, that doesn't stop me, or anyother Type 1 Diabetic, from living our lives to the fullest! The disease just proves how strong we can be every single day until we can find a cure!
I am involved with Beyond Type 1 because it gives me, and all Type 1 Diabetics, a platform to empower ourselves to Live Beyond our disease and to continue to follow our dreams. Beyond Type 1 puts forth constant efforts to bring awareness to the world by disrupting stereotypes of the disease and pushes to educate, advocate, and cure.
This campaign is important to me because sending out awareness and fundraising is the key to making any change for the Type 1 Diabetes disease!
Beyond Type 1 is a new brand of philanthropy leveraging the power of social media and technology, changing what it means to live with a chronic disease. By educating the global community about this autoimmune disease, as well as providing resources and support for those living with Type 1, we will bridge the gap from diagnosis to cure, empowering people to both live well today and funding a better tomorrow. We are here to disrupt diabetes.
