With Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. The daily life of someone with T1D brings a multitude of challenges, including insulin injections that need to be carefully balanced with eating and activity, disruptive glucose monitoring, sleepless nights—and wishing for a tomorrow where this struggle doesn’t exist. Living with T1D means there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.
Since Dr. Bill Blatchford’s daughter, Tiffany, was diagnosed with T1D, the Blatchford Family created the JUST ONE CROWN campaign in order to find a cure. One of Dr. Blatchford’s closest team members, Nanci Granahan (who is also afflicted with T1D since childhood) helped design the JUST ONE CROWN program.
Since 2014, Dr. Bill Blatchford began encouraging his clients to donate the profit of a single crown to JDRF! To date, JUST ONE CROWN has raised over $292,095.93. The Blatchford Family matches every donation dollar for dollar to reach their goal of raising ONE MILLION DOLLARS!
The Blatchford Family chose JDRF as the beneficiary because they are the leading global organization funding T1D research and believe in their vision of a world without T1D. Current research is exciting: it involves human clinical trials and all the signs are trending towards a cure!
We cannot do this without your assistance. Your generosity will help JDRF fund life-changing breakthroughs to remove the incredible daily burden of this disease—until it no longer exists.
Please support JUST ONE CROWN by making a donation today!!
With sincere thanks and gratitude…
