Welcome to Team Celia Christine JDRF fundraising page!
Celia has diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on 8/31/09 at age 9. We have had a Walk Team since 2010 and consider Eastern IA JDRF as part our T1D family. We have seen advances in technology funded by JDRF & belive in their mission to end Type 1.
JDRF One Walk has a single goal: to create a world WITHOUT type 1 diabetes (T1D).
T1D is an autoimmune disease which the pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin - a hormone essential to turning blood into energy.
It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing & lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are NO days off, and there is no cure. Please go to my Personal Page to read my story.
With your support, we can end this disease! JDRF funds toward research have led to breakthroughs such as an artificial pancreas system, encapsulated beta cell therapies, and smart insulin!
No matter what is happening in the world, type 1 diabetes doesn't go away.
40% of every purchase made through our CauseTeam will go to JDRF!
one person. one dollar. one step closer to a cure. #T1DStrong #JDRF #T1D #OneWalk #TeamCelia
Thank you for your support!
