Twins Allie and Ayva are your reason to DOUBLE your impact for breakthrough T1D research

"Living with T1D is incredibly demanding, avoiding getting our technology devices wet – no small feat with two toddlers involved."

"Our days are a balancing act between work schedules, ensuring one of us is always available for our daughters. Despite the challenges, our family remains united, finding strength and happiness in each other as we navigate this journey together."

— Sean, dad of twins Allie and Ayva

Your investment in T1D research...

Disease-Modifying Therapies

Insulin has been the sole treatment option for T1D for over a century. Now, Disease-Modifying Therapies (DMTs) offer new hope. Here's how JDRF-funded research is exploring this promising area.

National Screening

Thanks to the T1D National Screening Pilot Program, we could soon detect every child in the early stages of T1D before symptoms begin. This would reduce complications like diabetic ketoacidosis at diagnosis.

Thank you to our incredible supporters
