I'm walking for a world without type one diabetes

Sam Airay - My Story

My name is Sam Airay and 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.   In March 2021 I was diagnosed with T1 Diabetes.  It was a shock to me and my family, as it just happened and now I have to live being insulin-dependent all my life.   It would be great if we could find a cure or even better technology to manage this autoimmune so that I can live my best life. 

Why? To 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. Diagnosis means a 24/7 fight with no break and facing an extra 180 decisions a day to remain safe and healthy.

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