Type 1 diabetes requires making life-threatening decisions every minute of every day and can cause physical, emotional, and social distress. While technology continues to improve, it is not a cure. The Children’s Diabetes Foundation raises funds for the Barbara Davis Center, which cares for and educates patients, while simultaneously looking to prevent and cure diabetes. Funds can be given as general donations or can also be designated to particular programs or research.
Helping Hand Program
Diabetes is an expensive disease. Many families have to give up basic needs to afford their supplies and healthcare. The Helping Hand provides financial assistance to families in need so they can get the necessary medical supplies, doctor appointments, and more to live a healthy lifestyle.
Charlotte Tucker Scholarship Program
This program gives $4,000 scholarships to 20 Barbara Davis Center patients after an intensive application process each year.
The Barbara Davis Center is currently facilitating over 80 research studies. These include various stem cell and islet cell research, artificial pancreas systems, prevention of type 1 diabetes, behavioral studies, cultural programs, understanding of complications, and more. Donors are welcome to direct their funds towards specific research studies.
