JDRF Blue Army Jump FY23

I'm jumping for a great cause!

I'm jumping out of a plane to support JDRF in their mission to find a cure for t1d. 

Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone at any time, and 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. JDRF is the largest funder of type 1 diabetes research in the world with a vision to create a world without type 1 diabetes. 

My son fights this every day, there is never a break, there is never a day off, it's always life threatening if we grow complacent, he will not grow out of it and it's a constant battle to keep blood sugars in check. It looks like 7 odd injections a day and carb counting, bruising and feeling "off and sick" all the time. I wouldn't wish it on anyone!  Hes my little soldier and shows such resilience. Managing T1D is a full-time job and so many sacrifices are made in its wake. 
I would love to support this cause, help me by donating and when I hit my target, I'll go for a skydive! 

DONATE NOW to help change the lives of more than 127,000 Australians living with T1D. Thank you!
