"O.S.C.A.R. Hopes for a CURE"
The State Project is to raise funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in their work finding a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D). Ohio Society C.A.R. (O.S.C.A.R.) wants to help with this research by selling lapel pins for $10.00 each with postage of $3.00. The pins are the JDRF logo. Hannah chose JDRF because her Nanny had type 1 diabetes and died from complications of T1D.
JDRF is a nonprofit 501.c.3 organization and the world's largest nonprofit funder of type 1 diabetes research. Our in-house scientists oversee a diverse portfolio of research tracks, leaving no stone unturned in our search for a cure. While our focus is on curing type 1 diabetes (T1D), we also pursue new treatments to keep people with T1D healthy until that day comes. Outside of the lab, we push for increased government funding for research, and work with academia, clinicians, insurers and regulators to get new therapies and devices to market quickly and safely.
