Located at the Alberta Diabetes Institute at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, DRIFCan is on a mission to fund cure-based diabetes research.
Over 45 million people around the world live with Type 1 Diabetes, including over 300,000 in Canada. Living with a life-threatening disease presents many challenges, and life expectancy for those with T1D may be reduced by as much as 15 years.
DRIFCan funds clinical and human trials with Dr. Shapiro and his team. They rely on donor funding and research grants to continue their groundbreaking work. For several years, Bella Maas Boutique has been a committed donor and will continue to support the long term efforts of DRIFCan as they make strides in diabetes research.
