For those who have not been following my blog, let me explain why we walk: Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that can strike at any time. I have had it for almost 14 years and it is a nasty thing to deal with every day. But it does not just affect me. It affects more than 120,000 Australian families, and 7 people are diagnosed every day. You yourself probably know people who struggle with it or know someone who does. It is now a very common illness. So our team is walking with the #JDRFbluearmy to raise funds for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.
The walks themselves are more about meeting with the community based around diabetics and celebrating the wins. They also are great to raise awareness in our society. Please DONATE NOW and support our walks to change the lives of those living with T1D.
Come on, you know what to do! Like and share my facebook page HERE, visit my JDRF page to donate and even join our team HERE! Because even if you cannot join us on the days, the more people advocating this, the more awareness spread and funds raised.
I promise to write a new post on my blog soon, but in the meantime, please help me and my team in this exciting adventure.
