I’m fundraising for JDRF to defeat T1D!

This year I'm setting a challenge.....lets try and raise $5000 for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes, if we do i'll shave all of my hair off!!! That's right I will shave all of my hair off!!!

What is Type 1 Diabetes?

Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease destroying our body’s ability to process sugar by attacking the beta cells in our pancreas that produce the hormone insulin. Insulin helps convert sugar into the fuel our bodies need. Without insulin, sugar builds up in our bloodstream in life-threatening amounts. Multiple times each day insulin needs to be injected into the body of someone living with T1D.

Doctors and researchers do not know what causes this autoimmune reaction.  They know that T1D is not linked to modifiable lifestyle factors. There is no cure and it cannot be prevented and can strike anyone at any time. 7 Australians are diagnosed every day. 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 change the lives of Australians living with T1D. Thank you.

Hello Kelly! I hope that you enjoyed your Birthday today and had a really lovely day Kelly, your Birthday also happened to fall on the Adelaide Cup Day holiday, so you did not have to even work today, a day off on your Birthday sounds pretty good. In order to celebrate your Birthday, what better way than to make another small donation towards your Type 1 Diabetes ( Blue Army ) fundraising page. Good day Kelly, Brett Thomson.😀
