Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. His life and ours are now changed forever as he bravely faces every day with an insulin pump and several finger pricks and blood sugar tests.††
There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
