The Burden of T1D: 350K Want More for a Cure

Each November, the T1D community comes together for Diabetes Awareness Month to advocate for a better future for those living with the disease. This month, we not only celebrate the resilience of our community, but fight for a future free from the burden of T1D. The infographic above identifies an alarming truth: T1D prevalence, particularly in children, is increasing, while the cost of care is skyrocketing.

The T1D community deserves to have this addressed with diligence.

This is why there has never been a better time to advocate for a Practical Cure for T1D. The JDCA has chosen this week to announce that the 7th annual More for a T1D Cure Petition has officially surpassed our goal of 350,000 signatures! This incredible show of support underlines the T1D community’s unwavering determination to achieve a Practical Cure.

Thank you once again for your invaluable support!
