Children’s Diabetes Foundation At Denver

In America, every day, 35 children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes — more than one child every hour. In fact, one in three babies born today will have diabetes in their lifetime. All children and adults with diabetes dream of a cure. We need your support of our annual Campaign for the Cure to keep them well. It is a race against time to stop this worldwide epidemic, and every donation counts.

Diabetes is a silent killer that takes a terrible toll on nearly every organ system. Its most severe form, type 1 diabetes, primarily strikes in childhood and demands daily, multiple injections of insulin or pump therapy to survive, as well as blood testing throughout every day. Insulin therapy, combined with proper nutrition and exercise, improve the chances of avoiding the devastating complications of blindness, kidney failure, amputation, stroke and heart disease. But insulin is not a cure and diabetes management is not a guarantee to avoid complications.

Barbara and Marvin Davis began the Children’s Diabetes Foundation 1977 to fund The Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes (BDC) in Denver, CO. The Center has grown to become the leading center worldwide for type 1 diabetes with over 6,000 patients from around the world.

Your donations to our CAMPAIGN FOR THE CURE support our commitment to give all BDC patients the same high quality care. No child is turned away. Insulin, supplies and clinic visits can cost up to $800 or more a month — a financial burden for any family, impossible for the uninsured and impoverished. Through your gifts, we provide treatment and supplies to nearly 30% of the BDC’s patients who could not otherwise afford it.

Our BDC clinical team of doctors, nurse educators, dietitians, nurse practitioners, social workers, and a pharmacist work with the patients and their families at diagnosis to teach them how to manage and cope with this chronic illness so they may lead nearly normal lives. They then provide ongoing care and assist with preventing complications through the BDC Cardiovascular, Eye, Pump Initiation and Pregnancy Clinics. Medical assistance is available 24/7 to every patient. The BDC’s world-renowned clinical and basic Research programs include islet and stem cell transplantation studies, and testing for genetic and immunologic risk of diabetes. Trials continue on a variety of agents including a new vaccine trial to prevent diabetes in those children most genetically at risk.

Please, help us catch the brass ring by supporting our CAMPAIGN FOR THE CURE. When you help children with diabetes you empower them to create a better future for all.

We need your e-mail address to send e-blasts with the latest news on BDC clinical care and research, announcements of Children’s Diabetes Foundation and The Guild activities, the Foundation’s NEWSNOTES and more.
