Life Saving Medical Device Needed

I have been diagnosed with a life threatening condition called B Cell Hyperplasia (Nesidioblastosis).  Only 1% of people get it.  After I eat something my Pancreas sends out enormous amounts of insulin which causes my blood sugar to drop quickly and drastically.   I was hospitalized for 10 days in Boston to get my diagnosis.  Even with the right diet and meds I still continue to crash on a regular basis going down to the 30's.  My endocrinologist had me do a trial of a continuous glucose monitor (pictured).  The alarm was set to go off when I get to 55.  As you can see it went off 3 times in a short amount of time.  It has even woken me in the middle of the night which probably saved my life.  My insurance only covers it if I am diabetic, and I am not.  I have severe hypoglycemia.  Any activity, exercise , or stress will drop it as well.   I have become room bound and not allowed even to drive.   I desperately want and need to go back to work and this device will be my only chance at that.  It will give me warning when I hit 55 so I can get some juice and food into me to get it back up.  I have even had two unresponsive episodes.   Please, help me to raise the money to get this device.  I don't know where else to turn.   I will be forever grateful.  Thanking you in advance.   With love, Nancy
