In The Eyes Of Another
Sometimes the extra things people do just to be ordinary...are what make them extraordinary

JDRF

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is the leader in research leading to a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications in the world.  It sets the global agenda for diabetes research, and is the largest charitable funder and advocate of diabetes science worldwide.  The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.  Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal.  Until a cure is found, people with type 1 diabetes have to test their blood sugar and give themselves insulin injections multiple times or use a pump – each day, every day of their lives.  And even with that intensive care, insulin is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications, which can include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and amputation.  Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.4 billion to diabetes research, including more than $100 million in more than 20 countries in FY2009.  For more information, please visit www.jdrf.org/baystate or call 781-431-0700.
