Welcome to the page of Kaksha Mehta
I am riding in the JDRF Revolution Virtual Ride to Defeat Diabetes for our daughter who got diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when she was only 3.

Honestly? It turned our lives upside down. She must take insulin via syringe at least 4 times a day to control glucose levels in her blood. Her blood sugar is tested by pricking her finger(s) 6 to 10 times a day.  

Despite this constant attention, she still runs the risk of dangerously high blood sugar levels, which can lead to complications or dangerously low blood sugar levels, which can result in a coma. While insulin injections on her to stay alive, they do not cure the disease, nor do they prevent long-term complications. 

Your donations will move research forward and help our daughter and the other 300,000 Canadians living with Type 1 Diabetes.

Thank you for your support. It really means so much.
