As a lifelong type 1 diabetic, I could not be more thrilled to serve as this year’s Honorary Chair for the JDRF Heartland Chapter, Omaha-Council Bluffs Promise Gala – Past, Present, Cure. Join me in the fight to cure type 1 diabetes (T1D) by donating to Fund a Cure.
Fund A Cure is an opportunity to make an impact on the lives of people living with T1D and their loved ones through a 100% tax-deductible donation, which will accelerate research.
Together, we can put an end to T1D. Thank you for your compassion, concern, and care in finding a cure for this debilitating disease.
WE'RE THE STOP AT NOTHING TYPE
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
