THE STORY:

On May 6th I will once again be running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon and raising money for Team JDRF. 


With your support Team JDRF in Pittsburgh continues to grow each year, as do its research efforts, advancements in Type 1 diabetes (T1D) resources and support, and progress they’ve made in the search for a cure. Recently, our community has been celebrating many successes with beta cell replacement and the artificial pancreas. These are the result of JDRF funding.


Since my son was diagnosed with T1D fifteen years ago there has been significant progress in  technology to help improve the lives of the ~1.2 million people in the U.S. with T1D. But without a cure approximately 18,000 new people will be diaganosed with T1D this year.  


Please consider donating to my Team JDRF campaign. Your contribution will be used to help turn type one into type none! 


What is Type One diabetes? Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone people need to get energy from food. T1D strikes both children and adults at any age and suddenly. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle.
