Before you read today's What's New, we have a request.
Children with Diabetes has been delivering What's New via e-mail since July of 1995. Over the last 20 years, the list of recipients has grown from less than 50 to over 6,000. CWD has also grown substantially and continues to deliver world-class education and support to families living with type 1 diabetes.
Operating as a 501c3 non-profit since December of 2013, we need your support to continue our mission. Your donation will help us to provide the latest, validated diabetes research and care suggestions through our website and Friends for Life Conferences.
If you've been able to take advantage of any of our 70 local or international conferences, we need your help. If you've been able to use our website to help yourself someone you care about better manage diabetes, we need your help. Even if you've simply been able to take advantage of the information contained week after week in What's New, we need your help.
