Celebrate NDAM all November long!


The Power of Us: 50 Years and Counting

JDRF was founded in 1970 by two moms determined to help not just their children, but everyone with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Our community grew to include scientists, lobbyists, celebrities and children collecting coins at school – all determined to improve lives and find cures. Bound by a will stronger than the disease, this year during National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM) we will take a look at the power of our community and remind each other of how far we’ve come in the fight to cure T1D.


What’s happening this month with the JDRF Greater Delaware Valley Chapter

Keep an eye out for  YouTube sessions “Chronic Hope”   hosted by JDRF Volunteer Bonnie O’Neil on our chapters Facebook  and Instagram!

“A former board president and current board member of the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter of JDRF, Bonnie has been passionate about her work for JDRF for close to two decades. She leads, serves, and fundraises to honor her son, sister, and brother—all of whom were diagnosed with T1D as children. Her forthcoming book, Chronic Hope: Raising a Child with Chronic Illness with Grace, Courage, and Love (April 2021) helps parents raising a child with chronic disease gain practical wisdom for managing the emotional stress of raising a child with chronic illness, and is an important resource for our T1D community.”
