team bortmess & the JDRF walk

diabetes, family, life

The Bortmess family is walking in the JDRF Walk To Cure on October 3rd in St Louis!

It was last November that Aubrey was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Already she has has endured more than 1400 fingerpricks and 1000 insulin injections. She will be insulin dependent for the rest of her life.

There is good news though… It’s very possible that Aubrey will see a cure to this disease in her lifetime. JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) is leading the way in research to find a cure to Type 1 diabetes. But it takes money to fund that research…and so we’re doing our part to help the cause.

We would love for you to partner with us to help find a cure:

  • You can join our family team…Team Bortmess! We’d love for you to walk with us on Oct 3 in St Louis. If you’re interested, email me and I’ll let you know what to do.
  • You can make a donation and help us reach our family goal of $1000.

Aubrey is an amazing, brave little girl. Diabetes has not stopped her from enjoying every moment of life. And as her dad, I want her to be able to enjoy a long and healthy life.

And so we walk. And we walk closer to the cure. Thanks for joining us!
