At the JDRF Austin Hope Ball on May 14, 2011, there will be a moment after Live Auction when the room will be stilled and the story of hope will unfold; we call this special time Fund A Cure. During Fund A Cure, you will have the opportunity to donate directly to research and fund the science that will transform the lives of our friends and families living with type 1 diabetes. This year all proceeds from Fund A Cure will support the Beta Cell Therapies Program, one of JDRF’s most promising areas of therapeutic research. Last year, JDRF directed $35 million to researchers working to restore the body’s insulin-producing ability and cure type 1 diabetes — either through the regeneration of insulin-producing cells or the replacement of beta cells. Thank you for your generosity. Your support of the Beta Cell Therapies Program through Fund A Cure is 100% tax-deductible and will enable us to pursue our mission to find a cure for type 1 and its complications through the support of research.
