    Background on JDRF:
    JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is now the largest charitable supporter of T1D research. The goal of JDRF research is to improve the lives of all people affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners who share this goal. Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to diabetes research. Past JDRF efforts have helped to significantly advance the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. More than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education.

    Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults at any age. It occurs when the body's own immune system destroys the beta cells in the pancreas. Beta cells produce insulin, which is an essential hormone need by the body to obtain energy from food. The onset of T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. It comes on suddenly, causes lifelong dependence on injected or pumped insulin, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications.
