I'm walking for a world without type one diabetes

My Story

Back in November 2009, I got really sick and ended up in ICU in hospital with dka (diabetic ketoacidosis). The diagnosis was type 1 diabetes. I was devastated and scared. I hated getting needles from a young age and I thought how can I possibly spend the rest of my life reliant on daily injections to stay alive? 

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that can strike at any time. It affects more than 120,000 Australian families, and 7 people are diagnosed every day.

So I am walking with the #JDRFbluearmy to raise funds for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.

Please DONATE NOW and support my walk to change the lives of Australians living with T1D.

Thank you.
