The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation (DRIF) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide the Diabetes Research Institute with the funding necessary to cure diabetes now.  Founded in 1971 by a small group of parents of children with diabetes who were committed to finding a cure for this devastating disease, the DRI Foundation has evolved into an international coalition of business leaders, celebrities, research scientists, clinicians, families and other concerned individuals who have helped change both the scope and direction of diabetes research. Supported by private philanthropy, the DRI Foundation is the organization of choice for those who are serious, passionate and committed to finding a cure for their loved ones and millions of others with diabetes.

i mentioned DIRF to one of my work colleagues and told him he should look into the services and information he might be able to get concerning his diabetes. one phone call and he had more information and help than in all the years he has been diagnosed. he told me how awesome the people he spoke to were and helpful. one phone call was all it took to get an amazing amount of help and knowledge

Having a child with Type 1 diabetes, I always keep a keen eye out for research and cures. Other Type 1 organizations not only spend their money for diabetes cures, but also for diabetes REATMENTS. We are not interested in further treatments. We want an end to this disease. The Diabetes Research Institute shares our family's goal - ALL of their donations go to efforts to find a cure. ALL of their research is shared among other researchers to help facilitate the knowledge in finding a cure. After losing my daughter's Dad to cancer (which occurred at the same time my daughter was diagnosed with Type 1), I promised my daughter a cure within MY lifetime and I prayed to God that I would live to see that happen. My faith and my dollars have been placed with the DRI in securing this goal.

There are no changes to be made at DRI...they share the same passion as my family in finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes
