Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International

Diabetes is a chronic, debilitating disease affecting every organ system. There are two major types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune disease also known as juvenile diabetes) and type 2 diabetes (a metabolic disorder also known as adult onset diabetes).

Juvenile diabetes strikes children suddenly, makes them dependent on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. While diagnosis most often occurs in childhood and adolescence, it can and does strike adults as well. 

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International is the leading charitable funder and advocate of juvenile diabetes research worldwide.  The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through research.

Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.3 billion to diabetes research, including more than $156 million in 2008.

The Global Bridge Foundation has provided financial contributions to the JDRF over the past 7 years.
