Mentor Program

Your child has just been diagnosed with diabetes. What do you do now? When a loved one is diagnosed with diabetes, it can be a traumatic and stressful time. Fear, sadness, anger, and confusion about how to manage the disease can leave families feeling alone and overwhelmed.

You're not alone. JDRF's Family Network Volunteers can help.

JDRF’s Family Network Volunteers can provide much needed emotional support, information about diabetes resources, education about what families can do to help find a cure and, most of all, be a good listener. JDRF’s Family Network is free of charge, and we are here to help as long as you need it. Please note, our volunteers are not healthcare professionals and are unable to provide medical advice - always consult your doctor or other healthcare professional.

For more information, please contact Tracey Raycroft at 705.792.4833 or

Volunteers Wanted

Whether it's the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes or any other JDRF event that takes place during the year, they all require a considerable amount of volunteer help.

This help can be pre-event, working on one of many committees involving recruitment of participants, solicitation of sponsorships for items and services, or day-of event duties such as registration, route supervision, kids activities, barbecue/refreshment area, etc.

For information on the many volunteer opportunities available, please contact Tracey Raycroft at 705.792.4833 or

Volunteers are the backbone of JDRF and their support is truly appreciated!
