On November 6th, I am (FINALLY) running the NYC Marathon with Team JDRF in support of my strong, brave and adorably handsome Godson, Kevin. He was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) two weeks before his 1st birthday. Managing his diabetes has been hard work with daily insulin injections, countless finger sticks and monitoring his carb intake at every meal and snack. He just recently transitioned to an insulin pump to help control his blood sugar. Your donation will help make important progress possible and improve the lives of countless patients, just like Kevin.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding T1D research. Millions of people around the world live with type 1 diabetes, a life-threatening autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults. There is no way to prevent it, and at present, no cure. JDRF works every day to change this by amassing grassroots support, deep scientific knowledge and strong industry and academic partnerships to fund research. Learn more at www.jdrf.org
