Friends and Family
Another year has come for the Walk to Cure Diabetes. Brittany's Brigade will be walking again this year to raise critical funds for research to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. Brittany's Brigade is a group of Brittany's friends and family and they have been walking in the walk since Brittany was diagnosed in 2004.
Having type 1 diabetes requires Brittany to do daily finger pokes to check her blood sugar and routine insulin injections to maintain a good blood sugar. With advancements in diabetes care diabetics have insulin pumps and continual glucose monitoring. Funds raised at the Walk to Cure are used to improve the technology for diabetics and ultimately find a cure.
Long term affects of poorly maintained diabetes include heart disease, nerve damage, blindness and possibly death. These, among other reasons are why we are walking to raise money for Brittany.
We are asking our friends and family to support Brittany and her goal to find a cure for diabetes by making a donation to Brittany's Brigade.
