Children with Diabetes, Inc. (CWD), is an Ohio-based non-profit corporation that operates one of the most established, well-trafficked online diabetes communities through www.childrenwithdiabetes.com (online since 1995), promotes the Quilt for Life diabetes awareness project, and hosts Friends for Life conferences to provide education and support for children with diabetes and their families. The inspiration for CWD was personal for founder and president, Jeff Hitchcock; his daughter Marissa was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of two. Jeff's focus was to make a difference in the life of his daughter, and by extension, in the lives of all of the daughters and sons living with diabetes.
