The month of November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. JDRF is the global leader for research on Type 1 Diabetes, and their volunteers and donors are the driving force to finding a cure.
Type 1 Diabetes affects individuals of all ages, and the number of lives changing because of the disease is growing at a concerning rate, most significantly in those ages 20 to 39.
Donate to JDRF this month and help the millions of Americans living with Type 1 Diabetes discover ways to better manage the disease, find ways to live as normally as possible and most importantly maintain hope that a cure will be discovered.
JDRF's mission has been constant since it was founded four decades ago: to find a cure for type 1 diabetes through the support of research.Until a cure is found, JDRF is also committed to working tirelessly to develop new and better treatments to improve the lives of people who have type 1 diabetes and keep them as healthy as possible.
Any amount donated helps. Share this fundraiser with your friends and family, and together we can move one step closer to finding a cure.
