Insulin is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent the many complications that often accompany diabetes: kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, amputation, and pregnancy complications.
Please support our efforts to raise monies for this year’s Fund A Cure. All Fund A Cure proceeds will be supporting JDRF's encapsulation research. This exciting research will restore insulin independence for 18 -24 months by implanting newly created beta cells into a protective capsule, which eliminates the need for toxic immune suppression therapies.
By supporting Fund A Cure, you can help make a difference for millions of people living with T1D. Thank you for your support!
