On behalf of JDRF and the more than 300,000 Canadians living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), we want to thank you! Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2017 JDRF TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes. This year, over 40,000 Canadians Walked together in a powerful movement to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). As a result of your generosity, this year’s Walk was a huge success!

Community Engagement Program and Local Support Group Meetings

Bag of Hope

JDRF is pleased to provide our complimentary Bag of Hope, which contains a variety of educational and reference materials to help newly diagnosed children and their families along the way.

As a special gift, children under the age of 12 will also receive a Rufus bear, The Bear with Diabetes™, designed to help children cope and learn about insulin injections.

To receive your Bag of Hope, please contact Anne Martin at 905.664.1432/1.866.602.6662 or email amartin@jdrf.ca.

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 are not alone JDRF's Mentor Program Volunteers can help.

The Mentor Program 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 specific medical advice, for which you should contact your doctor or other healthcare professional.

If you would like information about the Mentor Program, please contact Anne Martin at 905.664.1432/1.866.602.6662 or email amartin@jdrf.ca.
