Diabetes Hand Foundation Donates to Life of a Child

Ann Bartlett Health Guide
  • Life with diabetes is never easy and for children with diabetes, it’s a different set of rules that you learn to live by. From birth, children thrive and grow on routine and consistency, but children with diabetes are dependent on the routine of insulin.  Children in poverty face obstacles we often can’t imagine, but one obstacle that all of us living with diabetes can grasp is the consequences faced from lack of insulin. 

     

    November 14th celebrates the discovery of insulin. Ironically, it took nearly 20 years after the discovery of insulin to ensure everyone living with diabetes had access to this lifesaving medication. Nothing could be more frustrating then knowing a life saving treatment is available, but financially out of reach!

    This year lets make insulin available to those most in need by joining the Big Blue Test on TuDiabetes.  By clicking this link and watching the video, Roche will make a donation of diabetes supplies to children in need.

     

    In the spring of 2010, Roche decided to join forces with Diabetes Hand Foundation to help underwrite the Big Blue Test in an effort to reach two vital goals.  Help people understand what moderate exercise can do to improve diabetes management and funding vital programs that benefit children with diabetes in some of the poorest countries in the world! 

     

    For every view this video receives between now and Nov 14th Roche will make a donation to Diabetes Hand Foundation. In turn, DHF will donate all the funds to Life of a Child program and Insulin for Life.  These two humanitarian assistance programs are solely focused on diabetes issues faced by the world’s poorest children. 

     

    If we, the diabetes online community, can reach 100,000 views, Roche will donate $75,000. A simple click is the difference between life and death! For the next week, have coworkers, friends and family click and give life saving insulin to child in need!  < http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkLHgK94Z0E >
