BEAT THE BRIDGE 2017

CREATING A WORLD WITHOUT TYPE 1 DIABETES

I’m participating in the Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes to raise money that will help create a better future for the millions of people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D).

With T1D, a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy.  If you have T1D, you must constantly monitor your blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin through a pump, and carefully balance these insulin doses with your eating and activity.

Living with T1D means there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.

Every dollar you donate to Beat the Bridge today will help fund research for better treatments to  remove the daily burden of this disease—until  there is a world without T1D.

Thank you so much,

Karena
