Bag of Hope

Does your child have type 1 diabetes? You are not alone.

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 a free bag filled with useful resources for both the child who has been diagnosed with T1D and their caregivers. Along with educational materials, we’ve included activity books and a special friend — Rufus, the Bear with Diabetes® — to show your child they are not alone while learning to take shots and test blood sugar.
