The 21st Annual Hope Gala on May 7, 2016 at The Sentinel Hotel will be honoring all mothers in our lives who love and support someone with type 1 or who are living with type 1. The daily dedication these women give to T1D is unmatched. During the evening's program we will show our support by fundraising to find a cure.
We would like to extend a very special thank you to Larry and Suzanne Mackin, 2016 Hope Gala Co-Chairs.

We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
