Two of HYL’s founders have lived with Type 1 diabetes since they were children. One was diagnosed at age 2 and one was diagnosed at age 10. They have each been living with the disease for over 30 years and have received exceptional care at Joslin Clinic since their diagnosis. Founded in 1898, Joslin Diabetes Center is the world’s largest diabetes research center, diabetes clinic, and provider of diabetes education.
Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune disease and effects 1.25 million people in the US. People with Type 1 diabetes produce no insulin. They would die without insulin therapy. Living with Type 1 diabetes is a huge burden, takes moment by moment vigilance and monitoring, and impacts the endocrine system and effects the eyes, kidneys, cardiovascular and nervous systems, and also reduces the life expectancy of people who live with the disease.
This is a disease that demands a cure. Joslin is dedicated to finding a cure for diabetes and ensuring that people with diabetes live long, healthy lives. Established in 1999 High Hopes promotes awareness and raises funds for the vital diabetes clinical care programs and ground-breaking research initiatives at Joslin Diabetes Center.
