This World Diabetes Month (November), National Philanthropy Day (Nov 15) and Giving Tuesday, we celebrate our donors and volunteers and all families living with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).

Our mission is to Accelerate the Cure of T1D by investing in the groundbreaking first-in-human cure-based clinical trials using islet and stem cell transplantation, right here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Our goal is to engage 1,000 Canadians to give or raise $1,000 by 2020. Please join us. Thank You.
