Of Continuing Interest
  1. Assistance with Access to Insulin.
  2. No child should die for lack of insulin. Just $1 a day will ensure a child has access to the life-saving insulin they need to survive. 1,000 donors will help 1,000 young people in need.
  3. Has your insurance company forced you to change your insulin or other diabetes care medicine or product? That's "Forced Non-Medical Switching." Share your story of forced non-medical switching at MyMedsMyChoice, a project of CWD.
  4. CWD will be taking over responsibility for scholarships to its Friends for Life conferences.

  4. This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
    My son James has had diabetes since he was 14 months old. I attend a diabetes support group and the subject came up of giving the child with diabetes control over their diabetes. One example they gave was to have the child decide where they wanted their shot (e.g., arm, stomach, thigh, buttocks). The next morning I asked James, who was 3 at the time, "Where would you like your shot today?" James' response was, "IN THOMAS". Thomas is James' older brother. Thank God for James, he does keep us laughing!
