I was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when I was 14 years old. Since that diagnosis in 2005, I have participated in 5 JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) Walks to Cure Diabetes. This year, I am proud to be back in action and hope to walk on October 27, 2013 with my family and friends. My team, aptly called Education of the Heart, would love your support, both in person on the day of the walk, and online in any monetary gifts that can be shared.
One day, I would love to see a cure to this disease, I would love the opportunity to tell people that I HAD diabetes, not that I HAVE diabetes. Until then, I will continue walking and advocating on behalf of myself and others the importance of finding a cure.
