    Again I might mention, soon after I was diagnosed I read a study – Insulin for the world’s poorest countries (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10752719) where the authors write – “The life expectancy for a newly diagnosed patient with type 1 diabetes in some parts of Africa may be as short as 1 year.” Insulin has not only been around for almost a century, but it’s not that expensive to make.

    No child should die because of type 1 diabetes.

    I am passionate about LFAC….it stirs deep inside my soul, and I desperately want to help this global crisis.

    I created a fundraiser, hoping to do something — ANYTHING — to make a difference.

    As Kerri from six until me said in her post I felt spoiled rotten after listening to Jean Claude speak at the summit, my complaints on meters and test strips seemed trivial when there are others out there especially kids who are dying for lack of insulin, we really should and can do better to support this noble and worthy cause.

    Remember, no child should die from diabetes. I could not agree more!
