Insulin Pumps, Other

Question from Pennsylvania, USA:

My 23 year old daughter recently died of complications from type 1. I have insulin pump supplies that I would like to donate to another uninsured young adult that is in need. What do you suggest?


From: Jeff Hitchcock

Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your daughter. And, thank you for thinking of ways to help other families living with type 1 diabetes.

Our suggestions for donating her supplies are:

1. Ask her diabetes care team if they can use them to help a family in your community.

2. Reach out to a local St. Vincent de Paul Society charitable pharmacy. They support families in the community who are in need.

3. Reach out to Insulin Pumpers  (http://www.insulin-pumpers.org/supply-donations.shtml).
