Christian's Diabetes Supplies

This year in lieu of raising money for JDRF we are raising money for Christian to maintain his Continuous Glucose Meter and obtain an Insulin Pump.  A Continuous glucose monitor is inserted below his skin once a week and monitors his blood sugar levels throughout the day without him having to do the normal finger sticks. He used to stick his finger 4 or 5 times per day and this device has eliminate them all.  Last year we raised money for to obtain this machine and thanks to your generosity we did it! 

The device sends alerts to his parents a when he is too low or high avoiding traumatic swings in blood sugar levels.  Many nights it has alerted us to dramatic lows that we are sure have saved his life. And that is possible because of you!

This year we are working on obtaining an Insulin pump to deliver insulin to him throughout the day so he will not have to take 4 to 5 needles a day as he  does presently.  These devices can help improve his quality of life!  

Yes, we have insurance but out of pocket expenses still amount to thousands of dollars.  The Continuous Glucose monitor has out of pocket co-pays of $500 with each 3 month supply.  Also rising copayments on many of his prescriptions have tripled in price with one of his insulins going from $44 for a 90 day supply to $150.  Therefore we are asking for donations this year to go directly to Christian to help with the costs. Thank you to everyone who has supported him throughout the years. Your love and prayers keep us going!


Thank you, 
Waples Family
