Is your child freshly detected with Type 1 diabetes? Then you might be interested in a Courage-Wisdom-Hope Kit, providing “aid and hugs for families.”
To help kids with Type 1 [read more about Diabetes in Children] and their loved ones adjust, the package consists of a parent guide, kid’s interactive guide, sibling guide, drawstring bag for a meter and other products, and a write-on magnet and pen for tracking emergency situation contacts. While the package can not replace seeing a health-care provider, it is meant to help fill out some of the blanks.
To purchase your free set, call (800) DIABETES (342-2383), Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM ET, or order the kit online: http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/recently-diagnosed/type-1-kit.html
