Mission Statement

To find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.

Description

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the leading charitable funder and advocate of type 1 diabetes research worldwide. Type 1 diabetes is a disease which strikes in childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, but lasts a lifetime. It requires multiple injections of insulin daily or a continuous infusion of insulin through a pump. Insulin, however, is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications, which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke and amputation.
