Finding a Cure for Type One Diabetes

What's the Purpose of JDRF?

The purpose to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) is to find a cure for Type One Diabetes, or Juvenile Diabetes. There is no cure for the chronic disease, however there is treatment for it. There is also research going towards finding a way of preventing the disease or future generations.

Special Diabetes Program

The SDP (Special Diabetes Program) is a plan to educate children and adults about treatment of Diabetes, prevention of Type Two Diabetes, and what the disease is. It has been approved by the government as well.

Get Involved and Show Your Support!

Like many other organizations, JDRF, holds walks, rides, and fundraisers in order to gain publicity and raise money for their cause. One of these fundraisers includes, Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes. If these don't sound like something you would like, JDRF has support groups online, t-shirts, wristbands, and anything else to show their support of finding a cure.
