Bruce Butcher's Insulin Pump

Goal met, exceeded in fact through island-wide fundraising. Thank you everyone, this campaign is no longer accepting donations.

Bruce Butcher needs our help!Bruce was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 2 years ago and has had a steady decline in health since. Once a strong and healthy man, he is now down to 112 pounds and is barely able to work. Bruce needs our help purchasing an insulin pump which will continuously deliver rapid-acting insulin 24 hours a day. This would change his life, and quite possibly save it. The cost of this pump is $7,000.00, it is NOT covered by BC Medical for those over the age of 25. Bruce's condition is bad enough that he needs this pump desperately, and quickly! Please help us help Bruce by donating to this fund. Any donation, large or small, will help us reach our goal ..Thank you
