My Story

It's on again!

I’m doing the JDRF One Walk Step Challenge to defeat T1D! That means I'll be walking 100KM in October to acknowledge 100 years since the ground-breaking discovery of insulin.

Why? Because I want to help the super smart  people with their research and development. To help them drive progress toward improving lives and defeating T1D, and change the lives of more than 125,000 Australians who battle this disease every day in the process.

Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone at any time, and 8 Australians will be diagnosed today. 

Oscar was diagnosed just after his 7th birthday, and 4 years on it may be a little easier to manage, thanks to his new pump, but it doesn't matter it any easier to come forget. A Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis means a 24/7 fight with no break and facing an extra 180 decisions a day to remain safe and healthy. For the rest of your life, and that's A LOT of days for an 11 year old boy.

So if we can raise awareness and a few dollars for JDRF, who knows what amazing things they will be able to develop that will help Oscar and all Type 1 warriors to manage their diabetes.   

DONATE NOW to help the #JDRFBlueArmy and help create a world without T1D. Thank you.
