More than 30,000 are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes every year. In the United States, there are over 20 million people with diabetes and about 200,000 children are diabetic. Type 1 diabetes cannot be controlled with diet and exercise. To stay alive, type 1 diabetics must have insulin either through an injection or intravenous pump. Diabetes costs our nation over $130 billion dollars annually. 

JDRF gave over a billion dollars to research that improved the lives of people with diabetes and ultimately will lead us to a cure. JDRF is proactively driving the discovery, development and delivery of therapeutics to improve the lives of people with diabetes today and to ultimately find a cure.
