Our Story

Our family is taking part in JDRF One Walk to turn type one into type none!

Our 6-year old son (and amazing brother) was diagnosed in January with Type 1. With just 10 days of simple symptoms, his little life (and ours) has been changed in a big way! With multiple daily insulin injections, finger pricks, carb counting and constant monitoring, we will do whatever it takes to FIGHT for a cure! Walker is one of the bravest kids we know. For what he has to endure each and every day, he still brightens the lives of those around him. Type 1 was completely unknown to us and to be thrown into this whole new life, is something that we have all had to adjust to and we will do what we can to FIGHT it! 

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that can strike at any time! There is no reason, no prevention and currently no cure. It affects more than 120,000 Australian families, and 7 people are diagnosed every day. We were 1 of those families and Walker is now one of the 7.

So we are ‘WALKING FOR WALKER’ - our son, our brother, our nephew/cousin/grandson/friend and our true Type 1 Ninja Warrior! and all other Type 1’s with the #JDRFbluearmy to raise funds for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.

Please DONATE NOW and support our family to "Walk for Walker" and to help change the lives of Australians living with T1D.

From our hearts to yours, 

THANKYOU!

Love, Family Whittaker xxxxxx
