Wear these shirts to support JDRF in finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes while promoting knowledge about the autoimmune disease. 100% of the profits are donated to JDRF! There are many misconceptions about this disease but the image on these shirts help to reverse those stigmas. Type 1 Diabetes is not caused by an unhealthy diet; Diabetes is an autoimmune response in which the bodies own immune system (depicted in this shirts by the white blood cells) attack the insulin producing beta cells of the pancreas. The organ eventually is "killed" and stops producing the life sustaining hormone, insulin. Diabetics have a very hard and complicated life. They struggle daily with hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), preventing diabetic ketoacidosis, seizures, comas, organ damage, and many more complications. However with support from organizations like JDRF, a diabetics life can be easier and happier. The first step is to raise awareness and reverse stigmas. Help me in my journey to accomplish this task by wearing these shirts. Stand up for your pancreas and fight to cure T1D!
