Thank you for taking the time to visit my page.
I am taking part in JDRF One Walk to turn type one into type none!
Type 1 diabetes is often misunderstood. 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.
On May 8, 2017 I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and had to get over my fear of injections very quickly! It has been a very steep learning curve for me and my family. Despite the constant monitoring of my blood glucose levels, countless insulin injections, carb counting, finger pricking and managing all the hypers and hypos (blood glucose highs and lows), I am determined to never allow diabetes to hold me back from achieving my goals. I also hope to raise awareness about type 1 diabetes and to dispel some of the common myths and misconceptions.
There is no way to prevent type 1 diabetes and at present, there is no cure. So I am walking with the #JDRFbluearmy to raise funds for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.
Any donation and support for my walk would mean a lot to me and my family and can help change the lives of people living with type 1 diabetes.
