About George Canyon

Canadian country superstar George Canyon has come a long way since he placed #2 in the second season of the popular TV show "Nashville Star". He has had numerous chart-topping songs and received many top awards for his music. The award he's most proud of is a humanitarian award from the Canadian Country Music Awards for his support of the Canadian troops and his work to aid the search for a cure for type 1 diabetes. George was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 14 and was told that he would never realize his dreams of flying an airplane for the military. Today he flies his own plane and is an Honorary Colonel in the Canadian Airforce. Canyon tirelessly tours Canada and the U.S. giving inspirational talks and performances for children stricken with type 1 and their families with the message to 'never give up on their dreams'.

About JDRF

JDRF is the leader in research into a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications.  It sets the global agenda for diabetes research, and is the largest charitable funder and advocate of diabetes science worldwide.

The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.  Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal.  Until a cure is found, people with type 1 diabetes have to test their blood sugar and give themselves insulin injections multiple times or use a pump – each day, every day of their lives.  And even with that intensive care, insulin is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications, which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and amputation.

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