Living with diabetes is challenging. Since 1984, hundreds of families with children with type 1 diabetes in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan turn to DYS. DYS provides education to help develop skills to effectively and independently cope with and manage diabetes on a long-term, daily basis. DYS helps both children and parents face everything from life-threatening emergencies to everyday frustrations.

You can make a real difference in the lives of a child diagnosed with diabetes.  There are many ways you can support DYS.  We value and welcome contributions of any size.  Every gift helps to support the unique programs and services that DYS provides to our community.  Here are some ways that you can support us:
