When we first started OGOcase, our goal was just to build protective cases that would help make diabetic life a little easier. Now we’re aiming to do more. We donate $3 from the sale of every case to help nonprofit groups find a cure. Together we’re working toward a world where Type 1 diabetes is a thing of the past.
beyond type 1
Founded in 2015, Beyond Type 1 is leveraging the power of social media and technology, changing what it means to live with a chronic disease. By educating the global community about this autoimmune disease, as well as providing resources and supporting those living with Type 1 diabetes, Beyond Type 1 is bridging the gap from diagnosis to cure, empowering people to live well today and funding a better tomorrow.
The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation (DRIFCan) was established to ensure donor dollars were directed specifically for cure-based research. DRIFCans mission is to accelerate the cure for type 1 diabetes by directly funding cure-based researcher Dr. James Shapiro-the director of the Islet Transplant Program at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, and his team’s world-renowned research.
Dr. Shapiro has completed over 500 islet cell transplants and over 30 stem cells transplants.
We support the team that can cure Type 1, so they will cure Type 1.
For over 40 years, JDRF has been a global leader in the search for an end to type 1 diabetes through both research funding and advocacy. Part of JDRF’s mission is to help those living with T1D to live healthier, easier, and safer lives. The organization also conducts research into cure therapies, treatment therapies, and preventative therapy research.
