For the past sixteen years, I’ve been involved in JDRF, the world's largest nonprofit funder of type 1 diabetes research. JDRF is accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. I’m currently serving my second term on the JDRF Board. I joined the cause shortly after my son Tristan, 30, who was fourteen at the time, was diagnosed with type one diabetes. It’s a life-changing event and a scary diagnosis for all. I know that JDRF is improving the life of not just my son but the lives of millions who are living with this egregious disease. For that reason, I hope you can join JDRF One Night Extravaganza on April 2 at the iconic Union Station in Los Angeles.
