Every three minutes, another Canadian is diagnosed with diabetes, joining the 11 million with diabetes or prediabetes.
Today, hundreds of Canadians will be rushed to hospital emergency rooms for diabetes-related heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, vision loss or wounds needing an amputation.
Diabetes Canada is the national charity that is making the invisible epidemic of diabetes visible and urgent. Diabetes Canada partners with Canadians to End Diabetes – its health impacts, as well as the blame, shame and misinformation associated with it through:
Educational programs and support services.
Resources for health-care professionals on best practices to care for people with diabetes;
Advocacy to governments, schools and workplaces; and
Funding world-leading Canadian research to improve treatments and find a cure.
Diabetes Canada and Value Village
Since 1985, Diabetes Canada has enjoyed a partnership with Value Village where all items donated generate funds for Diabetes Canada – 100 per cent of the money raised goes to Diabetes Canada.
Diabetes Canada is thrilled to be a #IGiveAShirt Challenge partner.
