Our connection with Juvenile Diabetes is strong. Steve’s sister was diagnosed with diabetes in 1978 when she was 8 years old and died recently as a result of complications from juvenile diabetes which included but was not limited to kidney failure, blindness and general ill health. In the space of one year, two of our friends 13 year old boys were diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. The boys have both dealt with their diagnoses well and of course, their medical treatment is wonderful. However, juvenile diabetes is for life and their lives and their families lives have been changed forever.
We would like to support JDRF because they accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications. There is currently no cure, and no way of preventing T1D, which is why we want to take action.
Six Australians every day receive the life-changing news that they have type 1 diabetes, most of them children.
Your kind donation ensures that we can provide the best research outcomes for the T1D community in Australia. The more people that know about JDRF, the greater the impact, so please help us by spreading the word and sharing my page with your friends and family. Let’s turn Type One into Type None.
