My child was diagnosed at 6 years old, I was told to call JDRF (JDF then). They had a parent support group that was so supportive and they had other parents call me that have children my daughters age. She made friends and I made friends and found so much support to help me face what was ahead. We have since become volunteers for the walk for a cure. The office is wonderful, and almost all the money raised goes towards research, very little for expenses compared to most organizations. I have helped others who have children who were diagnosed after my daughter and we all have JDRF to thank for putting all their efforts to help find a cure.
