The D-teens are youth ages 12-17 who are living with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Adolescence brings its own special challenges to any family, and diabetes adds another layer to these trying years. D-Teens was formed with the specific needs and challenges of this group in mind.
This group gives teens and "tweens" the opportunity to connect with their D-peers, while enjoying activities designed for teens. Keep checking back here to stay tuned for upcoming events.
Family Support Group - Halifax and Cape Breton
Family Support Group meetings are held monthly in Halifax and Cape Breton. It is a parent support group that meets monthly to provide support, conversation, and a break for those parents/caregivers of youth living with T1D. An informal meeting, it gives parents an opportunity to discuss the issues they face each day, as well as share experiences that may help newly diagnosed families.

What is a third party event? It is a fundraising event for JDRF, organized independently by an outside (third) party.
If your company, club, or group is interested in helping raise funds for JDRF, there are many ways to do so. From raffles to barbecues, bake sales, garage sales, car washes, and golf tournaments, the only limit is your imagination!
If you are interested in hosting an event or would like more information, contact the JDRF office.
We’re always happy to welcome new volunteers to help out at our fundraising events, to serve on event planning committees, and to assist staff in the JDRF. For more information on local volunteer opportunities, email or call the JDRF office.
