THE STORY:

Team JDRF Member Lori Dysievick wrote -


Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! My nephew Jake was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes approximately 3 years ago, when Jake was only 4 years old. Jake is a busy and active boy who loves lego, his puppy dog Scout and most of all - hockey!


With the help of programs offered by JDRF, Jake, big sister Teagan, and parents Andrea and Steven have learned to manage the daily care required for a child with Type 1 Diabetes. I am running in the Pittsburgh Half Marathon on Sunday, May 6th and fundraising for JDRF with the hope that one day a cure for Jake's Type 1 Diabetes will be found and he won't have to have the needles, that used to scare him so much, every day. 


Any donation amount that you can give is appreciated. 

Thank you again for visiting my fundraising page! Please read a bit more about Type 1 Diabetes below. 


Lori Dysievick 


Team JDRF in Pittsburgh continues to grow each year, as do our research efforts, advancements in T1D resources and support, and progress we’ve made in the search for a cure. Recently, our community has been celebrating many successes with beta cell replacement and the artificial pancreas, but the lives of those with Type One are still dealing with many challenges each day. 


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.
