The DRIF is at the forefront of research into finding the Cure for Type I Diabetes. The organization works with research groups all over the world.

The happiness of parenthood is sharply defined by the health and welfare of our children. The parents of children with diabetes have the constant presence of a monkey on our shoulders, as our children’s moment to moment health can vary without an exact explanation as to why the change is happening. Parents of children newly diagnosed with Type I diabetes are caught in a whirlwind of fear, disbelief, and unanswerable questions. The members of the PEP Squad of the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation have walked in their shoes, so we reach out to them to make this new road a little smoother to travel. We are there to give support, answer seemingly “silly” questions, and give them reassurance about their children’s futures. We hope that we can make them feel a little less alone at what is one of the most difficult times faced by parents – the diagnosis of Type I diabetes in a child!

After my 5 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes I did not know where to turn. After researching I found the DRI in our own backyard and found hope for Matthew! Upon touring the DRI, I was so impressed with the medical advances and the dedication of Dr. Ricordi's team, we joined the DRI Foundation and have not looked back since. As the mother of a child with Type 1, I will not give up until there is a cure. After 6 years we still have complete faith that the DRI will find a cure in the near future.

The Great!
