Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and lasts a lifetime. T1D is not related to diet of lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.
But JDRF has a plan to create a world without T1D. As the largest charitable supporter of T1D research, JDRF is currently sponsoring $568 million in scientific research in 17 countries.
JDRF is proud to have been the first nonprofit to partner with BowTie Cause. Your generosity will support research that lessens the daily burden, side effects, and complications of T1D until a cure can be found.
