Desi Runs London Marathon 2017

My page:

I'm Desilee, thanks for visiting my page.

In 2012, Type 1 Diabetes (also known as Juvenile Diabetes) changed our lives. With no prior family history, myself and my eldest son were diagnosed. Although, juvenile, hardly describes my age at time of diagnosis. 2015 saw the acute onset of Type 1 in a niece.

Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease. People with Type 1 have developed antibodies to attack their own insulin production. They require the ongoing administration of insulin via injections or a pump to sustain life.

JDRF is a global charity committed to improving the lives of people with Type 1, through ongoing medical research. 

I am passionate in supporting JDRF to find a cure. On Sunday 23rd April 2017 I am running the London Marathon for JDRF.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed directly to JDRF. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

JDRF, making Type 1 into Type NONE.
