JDRF stands for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. It is a charity very near and dear to my heart. September 28th I will be participating in the Walk for a Cure. I am also organizing a Kids Walk for a Cure at Madison's school in April. Her school will be one of 5 schools in Prosper ISD participating. Anyone who wants to bring this great educational walk to their school please let me know!! I would be happy to help in any way possible!!!
JDRF is not only important to me because I am type 1 but because of all the children and teenagers out there who feel alone or "different." Kids who are type 1 often deal with depression and bullying due to the lack of education. I am on a mission with JDRF to help education everyone out there about type 1 diabetes and how it affects entire families. There are so many aspects to this disease that people may not understand. It is so very important to help donate to research to find a cure and better treatments for people living with type 1. You never know who will be diagnosed around you. It could be your child, niece, nephew, grandchild or your child's best friend. Any donation you make goes directly to JDRF. Every donation counts no matter how big or small. Please feel free to ask me anything questions you may have about type 1. No question is a stupid one. I love to help people understand what these kids are going through on a daily basis. Below is a link to the page where you can donate. You simply type my name is under the walker section. Or just go to www.JDRF.org and go to the Get Involved tab and click on walk for a cure and enter my name there.
