JDRF is creating a future without type 1 diabetes
fund a cure
Over 40 years ago, a small group of parents shared a common goal to find a cure for diabetes. Their conviction and determination built the cornerstone for JDRF. At our Hope Gala on May 21, 2016, our story of hope unfolds in the quiet of a single moment. We call this moment… FUND A CURE
Fund A Cure is known as the Auction of Passion. It is an opportunity for guests to donate a 100% tax-deductible donation directly to cutting-edge medical research and fund the science that will deliver a world where:
· Families affected by T1D sleep through the night without fear
· An intelligent pump eliminates dangerous high and low blood sugars
· A single daily injection maintains tight control with no carb counting
· Those with T1D can live insulin free for up to 24 months
· Families no longer worry that a loved one will develop T1D
· There is no carb counting, no injections, no testing… no T1D
JDRF isn’t just imagining a cure, WE ARE MAKING IT HAPPEN.
Since JDRF was founded, we have given over $1.9 billion to type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
Last year, through the Fund A Cure program alone, JDRF directed more than $25 million to research.
We hope you will join us in supporting Fund A Cure and be a part of making this future a reality.
You can make a Fund A Cure donation on the night of gala or click here to donate now.
We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF 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 research.
T1D is 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.
Your 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.
