 Bag of Hope for Newly Diagnosed Children

JDRF offers the Bag of Hope and Mentorship programs to help those who are newly diagnosed with T1D, and their families. These programs are made possible because of your generous fundraising and donations.

Bag of Hope

When your child receives a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes (T1D), it can be an overwhelming time. As you navigate this challenging period of adjustment to life with T1D, you can find helpful information and support through the JDRF Bag of Hope®. The JDRF Bag of Hope is filled with useful resources for both the child who has been diagnosed with T1D and his or her caregivers. Along with educational materials, we’ve included a special friend — Rufus, the Bear with Diabetes® — to show your child he or she is not alone while learning to take shots and test blood sugar.

Find out more. Please contact Ayan Alas at JDRF Ottawa. email:

Mentorship Program

Talk T1D is a program that provides one-on-one support to families and individuals living with T1D. Trained volunteers that understand the daily challenges of living with T1D are there to provide emotional support, and connect you with resources in your local area.
