We're the stop at nothing type
exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by
type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome
this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D
an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to
produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It
strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and
lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose
testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding
critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to
bring us closer to a world without T1D.
