The Fondation Ressources pour les Enfants Diabétiques (FRED), proudly celebrates

50 years of commitment to families affected by type 1 diabetes.

Worldwide, 8.7 million people live with type 1 diabetes, and in Quebec, 4,000 children face this incurable disease. Type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease, can affect anyone, including your children. Imagine living with this condition 24/7, for a lifetime. At FRED, we understand this reality, which is why we’ve set up support programs to break the isolation.

Type 1 diabetes requires one to several insulin injections a day. People with T1D need to calculate carbohydrates for each meal. It’s crucial to dispel the myth that diabetes is caused by excessive sugar consumption. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, while type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder. This distinction underlines the complexity of the disease and the need to raise public awareness. In Quebec, 120,000 people live with type 1 diabetes, and this figure continues to rise by 4.4% every year. The consequences of diabetes are alarming.*

FRED currently supports 2,820 families, welcomes over 160 new diagnoses each year, and offers 300 children an unforgettable experience at Camp Carowanis.

Help us continue our essential mission: to support the families of children with type 1 diabetes.

*This disease is responsible for 30% of strokes, is the leading cause of blindness, contributes to 40% of heart attacks, is involved in 50% of kidney failures requiring dialysis, and accounts for 70% of non-traumatic amputations of the feet and legs.
