It matters not which organization you choose — just choose one! Being part of JDRF for 14 years has brought me a feeling of involvement, power, education, friendship and hope that is hard to explain. Other great choices:
www.jdrf.org: World’s largest non-government funder of Type 1 diabetes research. World headquarters are in NYC, but one of the 82 local chapters is bound to be near you.
www.diabetes.org: The American Diabetes Association link. A world leader in helping folks live with diabetes, including top-notch help for school advocacy and more.
www.childrenwithdiabetes.com: A remarkable powerhouse founded by a dad of a girl with diabetes. Check them out for forums, information, support and even amazing in person events like their Friends for Life Program.
www.diabetesresearch.org: Located in Miami but making an impact around the world on cure-based research.
