“Before camp, our daughter acted embarrassed and felt alone in her diabetes diagnosis. Camp normalized everything for her and taught our entire family more than we could have ever expected. She came home feeling more confident and so did we.” – Jason & Erin, camp parents
I hear this message all the time from DYF campers and families – and I know it resonates with you. Type 1 diabetes can be isolating, frustrating, and life-threatening. There are no vacations from T1D and many people just don’t get it.
DYF is the Difference. The experience of coming to camp, discovering a community of people who understand and support you, and learning the tools that empower you to live a life without limits – this is how we change lives.
Our impact is immediate. Campers leave DYF programs and return to their daily lives changed. They are armed with education and tools to manage this relentless disease. The friendships they make at camp become their support system. Life with T1D is easier – TODAY.
At the heart of our organization are generous supporters like you. DYF is the difference in so many lives because you know that healthy, beautiful lives with T1D begin with camp.
That is why I am asking you to invest in DYF this holiday season. Your support ensures that our programs are accessible to newly diagnosed families who are struggling to understand all the ways their lives will change because of T1D. You can give the gift of camp to a T1D child who counts down the days until they are back at camp – where they never have to explain diabetes. Your gift will change lives. Visit DYF.org/DONATE today!
