It Can
Happen To YOU

Every day, more children are being diagnosed with juvenile diabetes (T1D). The next child could be your niece or nephew, your grandchild, your friends’ children or anyone you know.

Every dollar goes toward a reward

Your donations help empower and motivate young researchers to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes!

Before diagnosis, a child might seem like they have some run of the mill illness with symptoms like, moodiness, tiredness, extreme thirst and losing weight. That’s often followed by a doctor’s office or emergency room visit with the trauma of being diagnosed with juvenile Diabetes (T1D). An undiagnosed child can develop symptoms of juvenile type one diabetes at any time in their childhood, even after adolescence. Until there is a cure, each of those children is at risk of the dangers that are caused by T1D and after they are diagnosed they have to live with managing it for the rest of their lives.

The juvenile diabetes reward for a cure difference

Our aim is not to manage type one diabetes, but to create a reward for the cure to be found once and for all.

The time for a cure is now!

No more management. No more routines. No more innovative devices. It’s long past time for the terror of this disease to end.

Global Drug Companies

Only a few global drug companies handle the manufacturing of insulin, diabetes testing equipment and management medications. As long as there’s no cure, they continue to earn 50 billions each year in revenue on patients suffering from type one diabetes.

Type one diabetes is a lifelong illness.

It doesn’t end when a child grows up, it can greatly reduce life expectancy and quality of life, and causes a whole host of side effects that lead to other illnesses. A child suffering from diabetes has to deal with it all day, every day.

Every dollar goes toward a reward

A reward is given to the researcher who cures type 1 diabetes. We are a 501c3 charity that is 100% not for profit.

The JDRFAC Difference

Several major organizations you’ve probably heard of say their searching for a cure but despite billions of dollars in donations, the good intentions have led nowhere. Juvenile Diabetes Reward for a Cure aims to change that. Every dollar of your donation goes only toward the reward for the researcher who finds a cure. See our Why a Reward? page for our story and the reason this mission was started.

Our Founder’s Story

Imagine having to stick your child with a needle over a thousand times in a year. Imagine that you had to worry every time your child left the house that for no reason, he could enter a low sugar hypoglycemia syndrome and possibly die. This was life for my family while my son was growing up. It is still our fear today as he lives with the disease as an adult. From the time we got the diagnosis of type one diabetes our lives changed forever. A person with diabetes lives with it every single second of every minute of every hour, day, week, month, and year of their life. For a child, this is confusing and often terrifying. Type one diabetes took over our lives more with every day. For the type one diabetic, this never ends. We learned to cope with the disease through the help and support of other families inflicted with diabetes We were provided with educational literature and meetings by the JDRF and the American Diabetes Association. Still, this wasn’t enough.

Why There is no cure Now?

Diabetes treatment is offered by only a handful of pharmaceutical companies. They earn 50 billion dollars each year on people staying sick and using their insulin, pumps, blood testing equipment and syringes. This “big money” has no intention of finding a cure nor providing their profits towards others to find a cure.
