On November 8, Diabetes Will’s Way kicked off diabetes awareness month with it’s Wine, Friends and Giving Back fundraiser. The support and participation offered at the event was instrumental in not only achieving our fundraising goal, but also exceeding expectations.
The board of directors at Diabetes Will’s Way would like to thank all who attended the event or donated online. Because of you we were able to surpass the goal by $2,000.
World Diabetes Day
Today, November 14, we celebrate World Diabetes Day! We spend today spreading awareness about type 1 diabetes and its challenges. Type 1 diabetes can affect anyone, at any time. And, regardless of who is diagnosed, the entire family is affected.
Our goal at Diabetes Will’s Way is to assist with the medical costs associated with type 1 diabetes. We serve young people in the United States who are underinsured (families that have insurance but have deductibles and co-pays that are so high affording these supplies becomes impossible).
In honor of the almost 100 families we have served, and those we will serve during the holiday season, we ask for you to take action on World Diabetes Day.
What You Can Do
Forward our website to someone whose family is affected by type 1 diabetes and may need financial assistance or consider giving just $5, $10 or $15 to support a child who will receive a type 1 diabetes diagnosis when they least expect it. Help us be prepared when the next family in need calls!
