This fund has been developed in response to patients who have contacted PAF for help with their medication expenses and could not find help. While this fund has been fully designed and we are ready to provide needed support to these patient communities, this fund is not yet able to accept applications for assistance as we are still working to secure charitable donations that will allow us to open it.

About Diabetes Type 1
Diabetes is a chronic condition associated with abnormally high levels of sugar in the blood. Diabetes is polygenic, meaning it is related to a change or defect in multiple genes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the beta cells in the pancreas that make insulin, or impairs the body’s ability to produce enough insulin. Type 1 diabetes is not a childhood disease, it occurs at any age, most often by early adulthood, in people of every race, shape or size, and has no known cure. Type 1 diabetes is also referred to as juvenile diabetes or insulin dependent diabetes.
