    Fantastic post! I have to say, I’ve never participated in a JDRF walk, etc. because I feel like raising money for research towards a cure should be second priority to making sure that all PWDs have adequate access to affordable care & prescriptions. Keep up the good work, ACT1!

    How easy it is to forget how tough it can be if you can’t afford supplies. If you call the American Diabetes Association National Call Center – 1-800-DIABETES (342-2383) or check their web site, they will guide you to programs for free meds and supplies.

    Even with insurance, Test strips are still expensive.
    Companies shouldn’t be allowed to get away with the prices they charge for testing supplies.

    Also, Caroline, I have test strips I’d like to donate. How do I go about this?
