Walk to Cure Diabetes

Luke Wajsbrem will Walk to Cure Diabetes

Walk to Cure Diabetes
I am participating in this years Walk to Cure Diabetes, an event that raises money to fund vital research into finding a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition which affects over 140,000 Australians and millions more people world-wide. Every day, five more Australians are diagnosed with the disease.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that is not caused by diet or lifestyle or through any fault of the sufferer.

People dont grow out of it and there is no cure, yet. A diagnosis of type 1 diabetes can mean multiple daily injections or a constant supply of insulin through an insulin pump, just to stay alive.

Even with the best care a person with type 1 diabetes risks developing long-term health complications. The statistics speak for themselves.

Diabetes:

Is the number one cause of adult blindness Is the number one cause of amputations not caused by an accident Increases the risk of stroke five times Causes over 40% of the cases of kidney failure Is the sixth leading cause of death in Australia That is why I am asking for your support. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundations Walk to Cure Diabetes raises money to fund the best Australian diabetes research.

All donations, regardless of amount, take us closer to a cure. To visit my personal fundraising web page please click on the link below.
