JDRF is making tremendous strides in type one diabetes (T1D) research with the support of our donors. The investments we’ve made in T1D research give us a clear vision for the future: a world without T1D. In this world:
- Children with T1D and their parents sleep through the night without fear
- An intelligent pump eliminates dangerous high and low blood sugar
- A single daily injection maintains tight control with no carb counting
- T1D patients live insulin free for up to 24 months
- Developing T1D is no longer a concern for you or your loved ones
- There is no carb counting, no injections, no testing…no T1D
JDRF isn’t just imagining such a future. We’re making it happen. JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic plan to bring a continuous flow of life-changing therapies and, ultimately, a cure for T1D.
Your support today will help change the pace of T1D advancements, accelerating progress down the path to improving lives and curing T1D. Today, your gift will mean even more. Now through September 30th The Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation will match the dollar amount of your gift.
As the parent of a son with T1D, this is personal for me. I am committed to doing everything I can to help the millions of people like my son Sean who suffer from the burden of this disease.
Please join me and The Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation in supporting JDRF’s effort to bring therapies like the Artificial Pancreas, Encapsulation and Restoration. You can learn more about JDRF’s work on these and other therapies in this informative, three-minute video.
Achieving this vision will require substantial annual investments to reach our goal of living in a time when T1D is spoken about in the past tense, like polio and smallpox. We know the path forward is an expensive one and will take more than the $530 million JDRF has at work around the globe today. The gap between what we have and what we need is significant. We need your help to bridge that gap. Making a gift now will double your personal impact thanks to the matching gift from The Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation.
We can’t do this without great partners like The Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation and their commitment to a match campaign total of $100,000. Please donate to JDRF therapy research now.
