Did you know that as many as three million Americans may have type 1 diabetes? Each year, more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the U.S., and the rate of type 1 diabetes incidence among children under the age of 14 is estimated to increase by 3% annually worldwide. [as reported by www.jdrf.org] If you or someone you know between is struggling financially and has to purchase diabetic supplies out-of-pocket, please submit a request for FREE supplies using our Supply Request Form.

On a greater scale, the foundation provides kids and family diabetes camp sponsorships, pumps, pens and new technology that might not be supplied or covered by insurance.The goals for ABCD are to provide, through donations, typical supplies for daily life to struggling families who have children with type 1 diabetes. The foundation provids essentials such as testing equipment, test strips, educational materials and more.
Someone had stolen my stroller with our entire bag of diabetes supplies and I couldn't get insurance to cover another prescription. Long story short, ABCD contacted me that night and the new supplies were shipped and arrived at my house at 10:30 the next day. I was shocked to receive such a blessing from people we didn't even know. ABCD saved Jaden's Christmas and possibly even his little life. I just hope one day I can pay it forward as you all did for my family. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
