On Sunday June 10th 2018 Diabetes Will’s Way took part in the Diabetes Youth Foundation’s Camp Day Check-In. Joined by vendors from Medtronic, Dexcom, Omni-pod, Novo-norodisk
and Tandem, Diabetes Will’s Way was able to greet campers and their parents and pass out
information regarding their grant process. Board members Chelsea Price and Lisa Oberndorfer
were pleased to see some familiar faces and to make new friends.
According to the Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana’s website:
Each year, hundreds of children and teens with diabetes from all over Indiana call Camp Until A Cure home for the month of June. While at camp, they swim, hike, do arts & crafts, take creek walks, play paintball, climb the ropes course, have campfires with songs and skits, do activities centered around diabetes management and skills, and much more!
To date, Diabetes Will’s Way has funded 76 grants and awarded over $70,000 in their quest to help decrease the financial burden incurred by having a child with type 1 diabetes. As Diabetes Will’s Way has grown so has our ability to help more families afford both durable medical equipment and daily diabetic supplies necessary to lead a full and complication-free life. Diabetes Will’s Way will again join the Diabetes Youth Foundation on June 24th and hopes to reach even more families in need of financial help.
