Hi Tom's T Cats Our Story
We are taking part in JDRF One Walk to turn type one into type none! This will be our 12th year of Walking to Find a Cure! We would love you to join us!
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.
Tom is now 16 years old and manages most of his diabetic needs himself. This consists of constantly counting all carbohydrates he eats and dosing himself with insulin via an insulin pump. Even though he has several years of practice it is a constant battle of balancing insulin, food, exercise and growth. There is never a day off, Diabetes does not take a holiday - ever!
As parents we would love to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, that would be a dream come true. So each year we put on our orange t shirts and get out there and walk, raise awareness and most of all raise money!
JDRF do an amazing job worldwide of managing many different research projects. This is our way of supporting them and Tom to being a step closer to findng a cure.
So our team is walking with the #JDRFbluearmy to raise funds for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.
Please DONATE NOW and support our walk to change the lives of Australians living with T1D.
