Honoring a Hero

Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.”

Celebrate Mary Tyler Moore

She filled our homes with smiles, laughter, and most of all — hope! But it was her real-life role as a champion for the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community that will be her most enduring legacy.

As the international chairman of JDRF since 1984, Mary Tyler Moore testified in front of Congress and led public service campaigns that helped raise billions of dollars for research to remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we finally achieve a world without T1D.
