Donate Now to Help Children
with Diabetes Stay Safe
Imagine being told your four-year old daughter is no longer welcome at her day care center because she was diagnosed with diabetes. How would you explain to her that she can live a happy and healthy life with this new disease — just that she can’t be with any of her friends anymore? Imagine not being able to find a single day care center in your small town that will provide the care your toddler son with diabetes needs to survive — and to thrive.
A recent Wall Street Journal article chronicled the difficulty and discrimination children with diabetes face in day care settings across the country, with centers often refusing to admit children with diabetes or provide the care they need to stay healthy.
The American Diabetes Association fights every day to ensure that children with diabetes receive safe and fair treatment, whether they are at day care, in school, at camp, or on the ball field. We need your help to make sure that every child with diabetes can be cared for in a safe and healthy environment.
Your gift today supports our important work in protecting these children. Through our advocacy efforts, we provide the education, support, and resources needed to ensure children are not denied vital care.
