We are celebrating our #T1DChampions during #NDAM! Don Ryan has had #T1D for 50 years. Check out his story! #PowerOfUs

I was diagnosed in the fall of 1970 as an eight year old. Pretty normal kid growing up in Austin, TX, participating in any and all sports; football, baseball and basketball. It was September so my beloved Texas Longhorns were in full football mode defending their 1969 National Championship.

While participating in football, I started consuming a great deal of fluids. It was September in Texas so it was hot. So didn’t think much of it. Within a week, I began having more of the symptoms; frequent urination and feeling tired all the time. After a weekend road trip with our family where it seemed like we had to stop every 15 miles for me to use the restroom, my dad called our family doctor and I went to see him. Dr Reneau was pretty confident he knew the diagnosis but had the lab perform some bloodwork. Later that afternoon, he called my dad and let him know that my blood sure was very high, well over 400, and that I needed to go to the hospital where they would be waiting for me.

I spent a week in the hospital learning to be a T1D. From the beginning, Dr Reneau told me that it was my disease and I needed to learn how to manage it. Big order for an eight year old.

1970 was also the year that JDRF began. In the early 1970s, my parents became involved with this organization. We had moved to San Antonio at that point. Throughout the last 50 years, I have been off and on involved with JDRF. The most important items that have made a difference for me in living with T!D for 50 plus years are the constant focus on research to find a cure and the use of technology to improve the daily management of this disease. I now use a CGM and an insulin pump. Much different from the urine dipsticks and the pig/beef insulin I injected in the early years. The technology is part of my daily life and couldn’t imagine not having it today.

JDRF is an important organization and through the tireless efforts of this organization we will find a cure. That is the one goal and one mission.

Thank you to all our teams for celebrating with us in a big way yesterday! JDRF One Walk Day was an amazing reminder of how many people are dedicated to creating a world without type 1 diabetes and that even in the face of a pandemic, there’s nothing we can’t do. The Southern Texas Chapter has raised over 1.5 million dollars and counting! You can keep fundraising at walk.jdrf.org. Our festival site will also be live all month, so you can check back and explore at any time! We are so grateful for all of you! #JDRFOneWalk

It's November 1 and not only is it Walk and T1D Day, but it’s also the beginning of National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM)! Our theme this year is "The Power of Us". This is an acknowledgment and reflection of how T1D progress has been achieved through “The Power of Us”. It’s not what we’ve achieved, but how we’ve achieved it – through people.

This month we can educate those around us about type 1 and raise awareness. Today City Hall and the Montrose Bridges will go blue for T1D Day! Be sure to take photos and tag T1Day and JDRFSouthernTexas. Stay tuned for more activities and information as we get into the month. Use our Facebook filter and tag JDRFSouthernTexas in all your Facebook and Instagram photos.

JDRF One World is a virtual world built inside the popular online game Roblox that allows for education, celebration and, of course, play! But JDRF One World is more than just a game—it’s also an opportunity to create connections between family members, friends, and classmates. We’ve made it a place where everyone can both belong and commit to supporting what we all want: a world without T1D.

When this launches on November 1, your first experience in the JDRF One World is a virtual JDRF One Walk inside the game for you to enjoy with friends and family, virtually! Just like in a traditional walk, we’ll have a fun walk route, educational tents, and a V1P tent. But in JDRF One World you’ll also get to play games, hunt for hidden locations of Rufus, the Bear with Diabetes®, and meet up with friends to explore. You might even bump into JDRF’s President & CEO, Dr. Aaron Kowalski! For more information on Roblox and how to participate click here: https://www.jdrf.org/blog/2020/10/27/jdrf-joins-roblox/

The fun begins on Sunday, November 1 at 8AM CT, right here at our chapter’s special website: https://jdrfonewalk.virtualeventsite.com/southernTX/.

Hello, An adult family member was just diagnosed with Type 1 - can someone recommend an Apple app for tracking? She has been started out with the pens - no pump for a while. Thank you!
We need your theme ideas for the JDRF Houston OneWalk!! To get those creative juices flowing...here's a stroll through themes of past years (2007-2013) via Grayson's Ambassador signs (a very proud grandpa hung these in our garage❤️). Who still has their signs?
Hi! I was wondering if anyone has a toddler with T1D who goes to pre-school in or near the Galleria area and LOVES it? Or if your child graduated from a school that was super reliable and that you trusted? Looking to help out the parents of a newly diagnosed T1D(11?19) who is 3, has a CGM, and needs to find a safe pre-school! Thank you so much!!!!
46 years for me, without complications. You're an inspiration, Leon!
Thanks for the sweet and spontaneous tour of the offices today! Now that I know where it is maybe I can squeeze in some volunteer time when you need help with stuffing bags, envelopes, etc.-- I'm out that way once a week!
Question What are Houston’s disposal laws?
