Today marks 16 years since I was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes. Yesterday I was able to share a little bit of my story as well as what life with diabetes is like for me and my family with my incredible, supportive, loving parents at the 21st Annual JDRF Gala. JDRF works tirelessly to raise money and support to work towards a cure for diabetes and to make life easier for diabetics like me.
My parents did an amazing job as the event chairs of the gala this year and I couldn’t be more thankful and proud of them. Thanks to my parents, and everyone who helped to put this event together, as well as everyone who has donated and supported this cause, we were able to raise... (wait for it)
1.34 MILLION DOLLARS!!!!! All in just one night! I am so grateful and can’t wait to see all that is to come!! Also, HUGE thanks to my fellow type one diabetic, @ericpaslay for being such incredible entertainment and for helping to support this event. He is such an awesome guy and I am so glad I was able to meet him!!#givet1dtheboot #jdrfgala2018
