THE ISSUE

The cost to manage
diabetes is rising

Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin to naturally regulate the body’s blood sugar, leaving diagnosed individuals with a life-long dependency on costly medical insulin. Even for individuals who have sufficient insurance, access to health care, and stable employment, the costs of managing Type 1 Diabetes can put a significant dent in a family’s monthly budget.  

For individuals in underserved and underinsured communities, this could mean having to choose between purchasing life-sustaining insulin for their child or food for their family.

THE WORK

A cause before the cure

THE MISSION

A cause before the cure

Help a Diabetic Child (HADC) strives to ease the burden for children and young adults who struggle financially and emotionally while living with diabetes.

 

THE IMPACT

We’ve served over 4,500 children,
families, and young adults
living with diabetes.

We’ve served
over 3,000 children, families, and young adults living with T1D.
