Thank you for being interested in this great cause! This group means a lot to me personally. I have been diabetic for about 4 years now and know the daily struggles and ups and downs that all type one diabetics face daily. Unfortunately many aren't sure what the difference between type one and type two diabetes actually are, so I left a little information from team JDRF about what all type one is about. Thank you again for visiting my fundraising page and I want to thank you in advance for any contribution you may leave. Thank you!!

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.
JDRF's mission statement is accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications.
