Your tax-deductible donation today will help us fund more American Diabetes Association-supported diabetes research projects that will accelerate the development of new therapies for better treatments, and help us gain knowledge to prevent and cure diabetes. Last year, we invested $33.6 million in more than 410 ongoing research projects. And there are promising results, such as the development of once-weekly, long-lasting insulin.

In addition to American Diabetes Association-supported research, your support will enable us to continue to advocate on your behalf for increased funding of diabetes research by the federal government that could support more researchers and projects.

Your gift will also allow us to provide millions more people with all the information and resources they need to manage their disease, including critical information about health insurance options, access to local community resources, nutrition, and how to live with diabetes. This year, the Association will provide information and support to more than 16 million people with diabetes or at risk. That includes answering more than 1,000 phone and email inquires a day from people with diabetes in both English and Spanish.

With your help, we’ll continue our work to eliminate discrimination for people with diabetes in the work place, schools and other entities. Our staff is on Capitol Hill, in state houses and in courts championing to protect you and your family’s rights.

And your contribution will help us reach even more people online and through local chapters and communities to educate them about the risks and seriousness of diabetes so that they can get the right treatments at the right time.

Your support sends a message to everyone living with diabetes that they are not alone … and that together, we will STOP DIABETES!

Please make a tax-deductible donation today, and join us in the fight for a cure!
