I'm walking for a world without type one diabetes

My Story

Hi, my name is Lily. 

I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 8 years old. 

I am taking part in JDRF One Walk to turn type one into type none!

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 :)
