    JDRF is committed to delivering better treatments
    – and ultimately a cure – to people with type 1 diabetes. Over its

    40 years, JDRF has funded $1.5 billion in diabetes research –
    more than any other charitable organization. It has become the

    largest charitable funder of and advocate for type 1
    diabetes research, setting the agenda for diabetes research

    worldwide. In FY2010, JDRF funded more than $107 million in research

        countries worldwide, including more than
    in 19

    40 human clinical trials – the final stage of research before
    new therapies can reach the people who can benefit from them.

    JDRF was founded in 1970 by the parents of children with type 1

    diabetes and now has more than 100 locations around
    the globe. Our supporters share an unrelenting passion and
    commitment to improving the lives of all people
    with type 1 – and to one day achieving a world free of the disease.

Though Lee and Carol are still as committed as
ever to finding a cure, the scientific advances
over the past 40 years have made them realize
the importance of finding ways to improve the
treatment of type 1 diabetes in the near term.

“I believe that a cure is important, but so is the
amelioration of complications,” says Carol.

For Lee, there are three clear areas of type 1
diabetes research that she feels have made the
most progress in the past 40 years and that hold the
most promise for the future: prevention (possibly
through a vaccine), genetics (discovering new sub-
types of diabetes to allow for better diagnosis and
treatment), and stem cell research (to develop new
beta cells that can replace those destroyed by type 1
diabetes). She views these areas as pathways to the        Top left: Edwin Ducat, first Chairman of the Board. Top right: (Pictured left to right) Carol Lurie,

The past year was pivotal for JDRF research – both in
numbers and in scientific focus. We funded $107 million
in research, and we made significant advances toward
new treatments and a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Moreover, as we marked JDRF’s 40th year, we passed a
significant milestone, reaching $1.5 billion in cumulative
research funding since our founding.

      more so when put in historical context.

turned to two friends – Norman and Suzanne Cohn – to chair the event. The Cohns had no personal

e   ight years ago, Fernando Aguirre, Chairman and CEO of
    Chiquita Brands International, Inc., was flying to Europe
with his wife, Citlali, and sons, Franco and Fabrizio. Suddenly,
Fabrizio became violently ill. Being unable to do anything
about it was traumatic, recalls Fernando. When the plane
finally landed, the family rushed Fabrizio to a hospital, and it
was there that they learned he had type 1 diabetes.

The Aguirres turned to friends and acquaintances to
introduce them to other families affected by type 1 diabetes.
It wasn’t long before they heard about JDRF. “We got high
recommendations for JDRF, and that’s how we began to
connect with the organization,” Fernando explains.

an understatement. They have been more than just generous
donors and extremely involved volunteers. They are a family
that has repeatedly given far more than what’s asked of them,

                                           He helped create the Online Diabetes

                                           that answers all kinds of questions
                                           about the disease from people all over
                                           the world. In the process, he helped

           A great-great-uncle’s Love
           Elmer Livingston
                                          Elmer Livingston was a kind but private man. He lived into his 90s, staying active in body
                                          and mind until his later years. Before retirement, Elmer made a living buying royalties in
                                          the oil business; he saved his earnings and invested them carefully. Though Elmer was a
                                          dedicated and meticulous manager of his stocks and wealth, it was his family that was the
                                          true center of his world. His nephew Jack explains, “Elmer didn’t show a lot of emotion, but
                                          he had a lot of emotion.”

           Nowhere is Elmer’s love for his family more evident than in the trust he
           created, in which he left over $114,000 to JDRF. The impetus behind his
           generous gift was his two great-grand-nieces, Clara Livingston and
           Meghan Fisher, each of whom lives extremely successfully with type 1
           diabetes. Clara, now 14 – a wonderfully accomplished student, violinist,
           softball player, and swimmer – was diagnosed at age four. She attended
           Children’s Congress and since 2002 has participated in her Illinois Chapter’s
           Walk, for which her family’s team has raised over $100,000. Clara’s mother,
           Gretchen, who served on the Illinois Chapter’s Board, says, “She’s an
           amazing kid who’s done an amazing job of managing her diabetes.”

           Meghan, 16, is also an outstanding student and athlete: She has won the Oklahoma State Gymnastics competition for her
           age group three times, twice after her diagnosis at age 14. Meghan’s parents, Bob and Wendi, have become highly involved
           with their local Tulsa Green Country Chapter, particularly in the Gala. Wendi says that since her diagnosis, “Meghan says she
           sees herself stronger.”

           Elmer would be enormously proud to see his two great-grand-nieces thriving so beautifully today, and to know that his
           generous contribution is going directly toward improving the lives of Clara, Meghan, and everyone living with type 1 diabetes.

                          The Board of Directors
                          The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International:

                          We have audited the accompanying statements of financial position of The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (the
                          Foundation) as of June 30, 2010 and 2009, and the related statements of activities, functional expenses, and cash flows for the years
                          then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Foundation’s management. Our responsibility is to express an
                          opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

                          We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards
                          require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material
                          misstatement. An audit includes consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures
                          that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Foundation’s
                          internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis,
                          evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant
                          estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide
                          a reasonable basis for our opinion.

                          In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of The Juvenile
                          Diabetes Research Foundation International as of June 30, 2010 and 2009, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the
                          years then ended in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
