Charity for the Month of May: JDRF

Get to know a little bit about our Charity for the month of May, JDRF.

Founded in 1970, JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Their strength lies in their exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D. At this time, there is no cure for type 1 diabetes or preventative measures to take. Although, many believe T1D is a result to certain lifestyle choices, it is actually an autoimmune disease that impacts both children and adults.

What is Type 1 Diabetes?

In T1D, your pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone the body needs to get energy from food. This means a process your body does naturally and automatically becomes something that now requires your daily attention and manual intervention. In order to balance your body, you have to monitor your blood sugar levels often resulting in injections or infusions of insulin through a pump, and carefully balance these insulin doses with your eating and activity throughout the day and night.

Insulin injections, however, are not a cure. That is why JDRF is committed to raising funds for extensive research, advocating for government support of research and new therapies; ensuring new therapies come to market and are recommended by healthcare providers; and connecting, engaging, and educating the T1D community.
