JDRF Newly Diagnosed T1D Care Kits

After I was diagnosed, I spent HOURS on the computer researching and trying to learn about a disease I knew nothing about. I eventually stubbled upon the JDRF website. I had no idea what "JDRF" even stood for, so I even had to look that up. Type 1 Diabetes use to be known as "Juvenile Diabetes," but because of people (like me) getting diagnosed in their twenties and older, it is referred to as Type 1 more and more. Hence, the leading global non-profit organization funding Type 1 Diabetes research is called the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). It's their mission to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. Which makes me a big fan of JDRF.
