Let's Raise Some Money for a Cure!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IN SUPPORTING MY FUNDRAISING GOAL!
My why for this fundraiser is pretty simple- I've been living with Type1 diabetes for 41 years!
Some days are super easy- almost like I don’t have a disease where my pancreas stopped working years ago. As for anyone living with an autoimmune disease there are tough days too, but I try not to dwell on the tough days or let it define me. I try and not let this disease dictate what I can or can’t do. But I know I have definitely given into fear of not trying things because of it. I don’t want to get myself into a situation with a severe low blood sugar around co-workers or family.
About two years ago, I decided to not be afraid and to push my body’s physical limits. I pushed back on my perceived physical limits because of the technology I leverage to help me manage my diabetes. I’ve found a rhythm with my glucose sensor that integrates with my insulin pump. I joke about being Iron Man or the Bionic Women because of the all hardware I have in my abdomin- but this technology works just about as close as a person with a working thriving pancreas!
This is WHY I am raising money to not only find a cure for Diabetes for the millions that are affected by it- especially the kiddos are diagnosed with Type 1! Dollars are needed to continue funding research on a cure and technology to help manage it so everyone who has it can live a full life just like their friends and family.
HUGS AND FIST BUMPS to all that will support me! From the bottom of my heart- I really appreciate your willingness to support me through this fundraiser!
