How are contributions to the Juvenile Diabetes Cure Research Fund used?
Contributions to this fund are used to try to find a cure to Type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is a condition where the body does not produce insulin, the hormone needed to convert sugar (glucose), starches, and other food into energy needed for living. Type 1 diabetes usually strikes children and young adults. Persons with Type 1 diabetes are required to give themselves insulin every day.
