Making a Difference

As the new year begins, we often reflect on the good in our lives and look forward to a better new year. I'd like to share with you some organizations that you might not know which make a big difference in the lives of families living with type 1 diabetes. This list is by no means exhaustive. There are so many other organizations, large and small, that work to improve the lives of people living with diabetes.
