Diabetes has become a worldwide epidemic taking over the lives of our children, family, friends, and loved ones and unfortunately, it will only continue to influence future generations. One in three babies born today will have diabetes in their lifetime, meaning they will have to go through the daily toll of diabetes care to avoid the long-term complications of diabetes, including blindness, amputation, kidney failure, stroke and heart disease. This is why it is so important, now more than ever, that we fight to improve diabetes care and find a cure for diabetes.

The Barbara Davis Center (BDC) started in 1977 as a small clinic caring for just 300 children. Today, it has become one of the world’s leading centers caring for thousands of diabetic children and adults, teaching them to live full, happy lives despite this disease. Beyond clinics, the Center is doing cutting edge research to better diabetes care and management. These studies include artificial pancreas systems that will revolutionize diabetes care, outreach to educate and support patients virtually, and studies to decrease the effects of long-term complications. These research, education, and clinic initiatives benefit every patient and will influence the future of care for diabetics around the world.

Diabetes does not choose its victims. People young, old, rich and poor are affected by this disease and the education, resources and quality of care each person receives can greatly alter their long-term health. About 1/3 of our Colorado patients have little or no health insurance, but the BDC has never turned a patient away from the care they need to succeed with this disease, mentally and physically.

Please join us in our mission to support care and research at the Barbara Davis Center by donating to the Campaign for the Cure. With your generous support, we can overcome the challenges of diabetes and protect our loved ones from its devastating complications. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help and generosity. It means the world to our patients and their loved ones.
