JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Founded by parents in 1970, JDRF has committed over $2 billion to forward-minded research with a mission to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. Our vision is a world without type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly.
The disease has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. It cannot be prevented, and at present, there is no cure. People with T1D live with a heightened risk for potentially life-threatening circumstances and devastating long-term complications such as kidney failure, heart attack, stroke, blindness and amputation. Currently, over 1.25 million Americans live with the disease and there are approximately 40,000 new cases each year.
JDRF works every day to change the reality of this disease for millions of people — and to prevent anyone else from ever knowing it — by funding research, advocating for government support of research and new therapies, ensuring new therapies come to market, and connecting and engaging the T1D community. Every dollar we put toward research comes from donations, like the generous ones made by Carnival Foundation. Their support also helps JDRF provide resources to the approximately 50,000 families affected by T1D in our South Florida community, including our Bags of Hope that have helpful information and a loving, stuffed bear, Rufus, that is offered to every newly diagnosed family.
With great support from donors like the Carnival Foundation, JDRF will be the organization that will turn Type One into Type None. For more information, visit www.jdrf.org
