I'm walking for a world without type one diabetes

My Story

Hello dear family & friends near and far.....

I am taking part in JDRF's One Walk 2019!

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease... 

No there isn't a cure ...

No, you don't get it from eating too much sugar and No, cinnamon wont cure it!

And yes... I inject 4 x a day (insulin pump attached)...

Most of you know, I have been a Type 1 diabetic for many years now, and you have all experienced one of my entertaining hypoglycemic and hyperglycemia episodes.....Annnnd as much as we all have a good laugh after, its a bloody drainer injecting and carrying around a $10,000 machine that beeps at you for attention and of course ensures your survival!

Not to mention, eating mars bars at 3am isnt really that great! Thats if you actually wake.up and not end up in a coma!!

So feel free to donate to this worthy cause.

Hopefully before I get a leg amputated, or have a myocardial infarction or go blind in one eye or have a very long sleep....or.....ya know!

Thanks for all your love and support!
