Hello and Welcome to my Fundraising Page! :-)
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that affects both children and adults. Unrelated to lifestyle or diet, it requires never ending management, a lifelong dependence on injected insulin and creates a constant worry of life-threatening complications.
My nephew Jake was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 2 years ago. With help from parents Andrea and Steve and big sister Teagan, Jake is a happy, active child learning to manage his Type 1 Diabetes. But I worry every day about the increased health risks he faces and that's why I am running to raise money for JDRF.
JDRF's mission statement is accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications.
Turning Type One into Type None
