Type 1 diabetes is a disease nationally affecting many of our children. In 1970, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) was created to help raise money to find a cure to this growing disease. Taking their cause to Washington, since 1999, JDRF has been holding a children’s congress to remind our nation’s lawmakers about the need for more funding to get closer to a cure.
Listen to Part 1 of this two-part segment of JDRF Children’s Congress. Watch these type 1 kids and fellow type 1 celebrities and supporters speak about the importance of raising awareness for a type 1 cure and what a cure would mean to each of them.
