Please join me in supporting the JDRF and Type 1 Diabetes as I will be running 26.2 miles though the five boroughs participating in the New York City Marathon this fall.
This will be my 2nd marathon supporting Type 1 Diabetes and I am very excited to begin training on behalf of a group that is so close to my heart. I have three family members personally affected by this disease and as an emergency room nurse, I see the long term complications and lifestyle changes forced to come with it.
Whether you choose to support me financially or morally, your support is much appreciated as I strive to bring as much awareness as possible leading to a world "without type one diabetes."
With your help, my mom chasing my brothers and me around the house with a lancets to check our blood sugar can become a thing of a past.
