Why the JDRF foundation?

  • The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is the world’s largest charitable supporter of type 1 diabetes research.
  • When Daire was first admitted to hospital JDRF provided alot of support resources to Niamh and Ronan at a very difficult time.
  • JDRF continue to provide peer support to Niamh and Ronan via their volunteer program.
  • JDRF is an international organisation and funds research throughout the world. This is particularly important to us, as Daire’s cousin, Sadhbh, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in Ireland in 2011.
  • Throughout all local and international activities JDRF’s mission remains constant – to find a cure for type 1
  • JDRF supports Australian diabetes research via the strategic provision of funding, investing over $100 million into Australian research to date.
  • In addition to supporting research, JDRF Australia plays a key role in advising and influencing health policy direction across all levels of government and building community awareness of type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
