Our Mission
Children with Diabetes focuses on care today, so we are ready for a cure tomorrow. As an advocate and global resource, we provide support, education and inspiration to empower families and all people living with diabetes to enjoy healthy, enriched lives.

About the Web site
Being diagnosed with diabetes is a life-changing event, and raising a child is an exciting and ongoing challenge made even more demanding when managing a chronic illness. The Web site is a leading destination on the Internet for families dealing with type 1 diabetes, a Web resource for parents of children with type 1 diabetes and adults with type 1 diabetes, and is dedicated to helping you find the information and support you need and in caring for anyone living with type 1 diabetes.

Jeff Hitchcock, founder and president, began Children with Diabetes in 1995 in response to his daughter Marissa's diabetes diagnosis at the age of two. The idea was -- and continues to be -- to share experiences with other families, so that together, we can all make a difference in the lives of everyone living with type 1 diabetes.

We're here to offer families and caregivers guidance, with original high-quality, science-based content and practical suggestions from trusted sources such as pediatric endocrinologists, certified diabetes educators, nurses, nutritionists, researchers, advocates, and fellow parents.

Why are we one of the most trusted diabetes resources on the Web? For these reasons:

Editorial and Advertising Policy
Children With Diabetes is dedicated to providing families with high-quality, scientifically based content. We want to be your most trusted parenting resource for your child with diabetes. That's why we offer practical guidance from expert sources, such as pediatric and adult endocrinologists, diabetes educators, nurses, researchers, advocates, and -- equally important -- fellow parents and adults.

Our content is all originally reported, fact checked, and reviewed with a few exceptions related to sharing research and news links. Our editors and advisors are constantly updating and reviewing content, and we make every effort to make corrections in a timely manner.

As part of our mission to provide readers with trustworthy information, we adhere to a policy of separation between editorial and advertising content. We believe you should always know the source of the information you're reading. We never allow advertisers to influence editorial content, and all advertising is either clearly separated from editorial content (in standard placements such as banner ads and right-hand units), or clearly labeled "advertisement" or "from our sponsors."

Children With Diabetes receives the bulk of its funding from corporate and philanthropic sponsorships of annual and regional conferences, which are opportunities available to all companies with diabetes-related products, technologies and services.

Our 990 Reports
An organization that is designated a 501(c)(3) non profit is required to file a Form 990 with the IRS on an annual basis to describe the financial picture of the organization over the previous year. It is a document that is available to the general public and, in a spirit of transparency, CWD is providing it to you here. If anyone would like to have a further explanation of this document, please consult with your tax/financial advisor, or send us an e-mail with your questions.
