JDRF One Walk: Walking To Find A Cure

On September 14th I will be participating in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) One Walk.  I am hoping to raise money for this organization to further their Type 1 Diabetes research.  This organization does so much to connect families in the diabetic community and is making advances in new diabetic technology that will hopefully lead to a cure.

I have been a Type 1 Diabetic for almost 13 years and I feel this excerpt from one of my earlier posts (Read Full Post) says a lot about my journey so far.

  • Do I still think about my diabetes every single moment of the day?  Yes, but it is not as all consuming as it once was.
  • Do I still have high blood sugar days that seem to come on with no reason?  Yes, but I am slowly learning to trust that these days will pass and things will even out once again.
  • Do I still have the occasional activity that I need to sit out or delay because my blood sugars are too low?  Yes, but again I am learning to grant myself grace and have patience knowing that in time I will be able to get back to what I want to do.
  • And most importantly…Do I still allow myself to take a minute every day to realize how strong this disease has made me and all of us living this life?  Yes, yes and yes again.

With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.

If you feel so inclined I would great appreciate any support you are willing donate.  You can make donations using the link below.

Also I would love to have company while we walk!  Anyone in the Milwaukee area is welcome to join me!

You’re part of that hope. By donating you can support life-changing research that helps me and everyone with T1D live healthier and longer, until a cure is found.

Your support makes it all possible.

Thank you for all the ways you support me everyday,

Lindsey Kaptur
