Thank you for supporting my cause! As someone who lucked into Type 1 diabetes at the old age of 22, I had a different transition than many. Having the Western PA Chapter of the JDRF around has helped me greatly over the 10 years I have no been dealing with all of this all while transitioning into adulthood.
Your donation will go a long way in continuing that support for others like me who could use some knowledge or just a sympathetic ear from someone going through the same daily struggle!

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that affects both children and adults. Unrelated to lifestyle or diet, it requires never ending management, a lifelong dependence on injected insulin and creates a constant worry of life-threatening complications.
JDRF's mission statement is accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications.
