We love how good it feels to do good. That's why we donate a portion of every purchase to charities dedicated to the research and support of your health.
Fighting Diabetes One Lollipop at a Time
At Dr. John’s, we know that many people are affected by Type 1 Diabetes, either directly or through someone they know and love. We purchased Dr. John’s Sugar Free Specialties business six months before our grandson, Andrew, was diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic (T1D). Andrew is one of 200,000 youths and over 1 million adults in the U.S. who live with Type 1 Diabetes. Andrew is an athletic young man who was diagnosed at the age of 15 and has worked diligently to maintain a healthy A1C level so he can continue to participate in the sports he loves so much.
As we have become increasingly aware that kids like Andrew just want to be kids, we are proud to be able to provide them with our premium sugar-free candies to satisfy a sweet tooth.
We are so grateful for all that JDRF has done in the areas of treatment, community awareness and research; and we are honored to be able to contribute a portion of our proceeds to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Michigan and NW Ohio Chapter.
Thank you for your support in the fight against diabetes!
