Stephanie's Diabetic Pump

$2,500 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 34 people in 6 months
My name is Stephanie Ahern. I have been living with Type 1 Diabetes for over 16 years. 

I am a strong supporter of the American Diabetes Association and with the help my my friends and family we have raised over $4,000 for the cause by participating in the Tour De Cure. I love helping others! 

I am currently, taking classes towards becoming a nurse while also working fulltime as a manager at a high volume Cupcake cafe in Seattle.  I lead a busy, wonderful life. 

I am asking for help this time so that I can purchase a Medtronic insulin pump.  For those that don't know, it is a somewhat magical pump that takes my blood sugar every 5 minutes and maintains my sugar levels. This means, no shots several times a day and no finger pokes to test my sugar. This device will help me so much especially with the hectic life I lead. I will have a higher chance of surviving diabetes related complications that happen with this disease later in life. 

Please help me get this device so I can continue to help others. Much love! And thank you for your incredible support!!

Hello Everyone!! I just wanted to give a quick update. Stephanie just had her consult with her doc where she ordered her new pump. Apparently, it is quite the process! She has three appointments scheduled to learn how to use it once it arrives. Steph will send another update to let you know when she has it. Thank you all again for your tremendous support!
