We were so pleased to receive the nominations for individuals and organizations to receive the $250 Visa Gift Card we pledged to help a diabetic in need. We appreciate the thoughtfulness and compassion shown by members of Diabetic Connect.
It was very difficult to decide where the gift could do the most good. In fact, we made the decision to award one $250 gift card to an individual and one $250 to an organization.
The organization we choose is the Divabetics of Greater Cleveland. This great group meets weekly to help women in the Cleveland area to take control of their diabetes. They have run out of their grant money and are struggling to stay funded. We are pleased to help with this gift.
We have chosen Christopher C. who is the brother of Diabetic Connect member adorable007. Christopher is a hard-working father of five who is without insurance. He has struggled to pay for the supplies he needs to control his type 1 diabetes. We hope this gift will help him.
