Thank you to our National Sponsors:
JDRF is pleased to provide our complimentary Bag of Hope to newly diagnosed children to help them and their families become more familiar with T1D. The Bag of Hope contains a variety of educational and reference materials.
As a special gift, children under 12 will also receive a Rufus, the Bear with Diabetes™, designed to help children cope and learn about insulin injections.
To receive your Bag of Hope, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.877.287.3533.
You or a family member have just been diagnosed with T1D; what do you do now? When faced with such a diagnosis, it can be a traumatic and stressful time, possibly leaving you and/or your family feeling alone and overwhelmed but you're not alone.
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...
We are here to help. Please note, our volunteers are not healthcare professionals and are not authorized to provide medical advice for which you should consult your doctor or other healthcare professionals.
