So many parents just want to take Type 1 diabetes away from their children. While it's not possible, what we can do as mothers and fathers of kids with Type 1, is find answers. Solutions. How do you manage a pump on a toddler? Our PumpPockets can at least answer that question, which Tslim and DexCom reps tell us is one of the first questions they get after selling a new insulin pump to a Type 1 diabetic.
Another mom told us that after wearing a PumpPocket to school for the first time, her dauhter was so excited because she didn't have to talk about diabetes at school. Sometimes our little ones are tired. Tired of explaining themselves. Tired of being different and tired of diabetes. We need to cure Type 1 Diabetes. In the meantime, let's make it easier.
This amazing girl was one of the first to receive a PumpPocket-- and right in time for homecoming. Her mother cried when we met her and told her about our line of Techwear for diabetics. I think she was emotional partly because someone without type 1 cared about their plight and partly because her daughter's care would be simplified Skylar has taught us a lot about what it means to be a teenager with Type 1. It is not easy. And we have been so humbled to serve her and so many others like her.
Does anything else matter?
