Why I Support the DRI

People from all walks of life actively support the cure-focused research at the DRI. But they all share one important belief: the DRI is the best hope for a cure...and tomorrow is not soon enough to cure all people with diabetes.

Ron Darling is an Emmy-winning sports analyst and a member of the DRI Foundation's National Board of Directors. He will stop at nothing until a cure is found for his eldest son, Jordan, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 11.
