Help Send Max to Diabetic Camp!

Max was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes last March.  We would love to be able to send him to camp Sweeney this summer which is an educational camp for kids with diabetes.  It is great for them to have support from staff and other kids who are going through the same things they are! 

"A diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes changes the life of a child forever. Days filled with school, sports, and activities are quickly replaced by blood tests, insulin injections, and carbohydrate calculations. Every step required to manage their diabetes is a step away from what children see as “normal.” But at Camp Sweeney, Type 1 diabetes is normal. And when diabetes disappears, every camper can show what makes them special, not what makes them different."

The sessions at Camp Sweeney are three weeks long and help the kids learn to manage their disease in a healthy way.  The total cost for the camp is $3600.  We have received a $500 scholarship from the camp and we have already paid the $500 deposit.  We could really use help raising the additional funds. He will be attending the 1st session from 6/10-6/29.

We will need:
$1000 by April 15th
$1000 by May 15th
$1000 by June 1st

Please consider helping us send Max to this very important camp.  Any little bit helps!!!! Thank you so much!
