    My nephew (K) age was rushed by ambulance then flown to the hospital… Very scary.. there were no previous signs of Diabetes.. He was near coma.. He has a 2 year old sibling.. I think this interactive Bear is a very good idea.. Not only for him but for teaching siblings.. There is anot enough awareness for children s diabetes.. Even in the schools the food is not good for these children…

    I would like to see This idea go even further.. perhaps a series of interactive books … Books that could actually interact with the Bear.. Another idea might be to create a website for the bear where both the bear and the child could keep records of their foods, sugar levels and shots.. Perhaps even a sibling bear somewhere down the line to help the siblings understand because of course they also will not be able to eat freely anymore.. Diabities effects the entire family and life style.. sincerly Barbara

    Think the concept of the bear is a good teaching aide.. There are not enough things like this our there for ill children. DMProducts. Suggest maybe also doing a friend.. perhaps a puppy to interact with the bear… The puppy could be the bears support team? Just a thought. Stan

    I would love to win this bear for my special buddy, my grandson who is 3 and we just found out he has diabetes. If I had to make something other than a bear I would make it a super hero, as that is what my grandson is to me. dm products.

    DMProducts, I love this Jerry bear idea, I think it would be perfect for my nephew Landon who was recently diagnosed as type 1, he is 3 and this would be a fun way to help him understand what he is up against. I think this is a great platform and would like to see the same system used in cabbage patch dolls or something similar.

    DMproducts- jerry bear is such a wonderful gift. We are hoping to win this bear as we have the bravest three year old in mind who needs his company. I would love to see a tabletop arcade style game that also serves as a medical station where kevels can be checked and meds adjusted

    If you can do this with a bear, it would be easy to do it with a doll that looks more like the child that has type 1 diabetes, you can make a female doll for little girls, male dolls for the little boys, and of all ethnicities. I am a Grandfather of a beautiful little two year old girl, just diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, and if dolls are not in the future, I do plan on getting Jerry for my Grand-daughter. Thank you for doing every thing you have done so far, but don’t stop now, to many little kids, ( and their parents and grand parents) are counting on you to help them and us.
