BENEFITING: Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi
EVENT DATE: Sep 13, 2014
Hi! We are here because of our family member Cylliah Cochran! She was diagnosed with Type 1 juvenile diabetes over a year ago! She was also born with other medical issues! Diabetes is a serious condition and we want to do as much as we can to help find a cure! Cylliah is 11 years old and loves music and dancing! She is such a blessing to our family and everyone around her! Please donate in her name!!!!
We're helping create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of millions of people affected by this chronic disease!!.
In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.
