Hello! This is my first post here so I'll briefly introduce myself. I'm a 23 year old from Michigan. I was diagnosed almost four years ago. I started on the Omnipod in July and had some pod errors at the start, but am now really loving it. Just before I got the Omnipod I decided to start a campaign to raise money for Dr. Faustman at Mass General. If you haven't read about her research please take a look here, I truly believe that the research she's doing is extremely promising and I thought, instead of moping about how much T1D sucks, I should start being a little more proactive. So anyway, if any of you are interested in checking out my campaign, my site is Every link on my site directs to Mass Generals donation page, and every cent I raise elsewhere goes to her research. My latest effort is in partnership with a company who makes re-usable stickers for omnipods, they let me design two stickers and they will donate all proceeds to Dr. Faustman. If you're interested, here they are: Thanks so much!

May I suggest a change in your website: The light grey printing is rather difficult to read on the black background. Could you increase the contrast between the text and the background? That would improve the readability of the site.

I'm glad you love omnipod as much as I do! :) I will check it out. Thanks for posting this. My pod is seriously the best thing ever. I sometimes even forget I have diabetes.
