Mary Cartier’s story, shared by her mom Michelle, shows why a cure is crucial
May 5th 2021 was a day that changed our lives forever. Initially we thought Mary had a common illness like a sore throat, strep throat or maybe even the flu. Little did we know that type 1 diabetes had already entered our lives. Mary was rushed to the hospital with severe diabetic ketoacidosis. If we had waited just one more day to seek medical help, the outcome could have been far worse. I thank God everyday that there are treatments to help her live a full and successful life, but managing diabetes is tough. It’s a constant battle to make sure that her sugar levels maintain some sense of normalcy. I would love a future where Mary and others can live without insulin dependence, sparing families from similar struggles and the heartache of witnessing their children suffer.Organization Mission Statement

Type One Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, envisions a world free from the burden of type 1 diabetes (T1D). Central to our mission is the Type One Cares Campaign, which raises awareness and funds to support and empower those affected by T1D. We offer financial aid, support, education, and empowerment, guiding individuals to lead powerful lives beyond the diagnosis. We actively champion the life-changing research of the Faustman Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital, advancing toward a cure for T1D.

Type One Cares
The Type One Cares Campaign is an initiative dedicated to supporting families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). It aims to alleviate the financial burden often associated with managing T1D by providing scholarships and financial assistance. Through generous donations, the campaign offers support for expenses such as insulin supplies, summer camp tuition, and college scholarships for individuals living with T1D or those with a sibling affected by it. Additionally, the campaign seeks to raise awareness about T1D and funds for research toward finding a cure.

Assistance for Diabetes Management Costs
Managing diabetes is costly, with new patients spending $1,400 on education and appointments. Pump Therapy offers better control but can cost up to $1,200 monthly.

Children’s insulin costs around $300 per month, and testing six to eight times a day adds up to $300 monthly. We provide financial assistance for qualifying individuals, as going without insulin is not an option.

T1D Camp Scholarships
Partnering with the Barton Center for Diabetes Education, we offer scholarships for local children with type 1 diabetes to attend a week of residential camp in the summer.

Educational Scholarships
We award ten $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors in the South Shore community, supporting their advanced studies at any college, university, or technical institution.

Advancing Toward a Cure
We champion the groundbreaking research of the Faustman Lab at MGH as they pave the
path toward a cure for type 1 diabetes, changing lives in the process.

Type One Fitness Center
Type One Fitness, a diabetes-focused fitness center, is open to everyone. Offering experienced trainers, nutritionists, state-of-the-art equipment, and comprehensive workshops, we enhance overall well-being. Financial aid is available for memberships, and we provide scholarships for individuals living with type 1 diabetes.

Sponsorships Available
A Type One sponsorship is more than a financial donation – it’s a partnership to expand our mission. Show commitment and support our event’s success by sponsoring Type One, providing a platform for families to unite in honor of loved ones living with T1D. Thank you for helping us raise awareness and funds for research, supporting our community, and working toward finding a cure.
