Message from the Chairman for September 12, 1999

When my child was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, my wife and I had more questions than any one person could answer in a week. There would be times when these unanswered questions would wake me up in the middle of the night…I would think to myself, "how will I possibly know what to do all the time" and of course, "why my child?" Only my anger had stronger feelings that the "not knowing." is here as a free service to answer all your questions about diabetes, even in the middle of the night. We survive on financial contributions from you and our sponsors. Both contributions help make the Children with Diabetes web site possible.

As part of our Fall Fundraising Drive, we have introduced six new Humpty Dombrowski hats in, of course, the best mixed patterns. We also continue to offer our polo shirt, and an excellent book about managing Type 1 diabetes. All are available in our online store.

But we really need contributions from you, our reading public. Did you know?

  • is the largest free access diabetes web site in the world
  • We have over 5,800 pages
  • We have won over 24 industry awards
  • We were votes Best Medical web site by Diabetes Interview Magazine

In the month of August alone, we delivered 760,872 pages (over 2 million hits) to 120,628 user sessions. We had visitors from 106 countries.

We believe we are largest and best web site on diabetes there is. And all of this has been done through part-time volunteers. We would like to serve you better in the future and want to expand and hire professional help. That's why we need money. It is for our future that we look to you, our viewers, to help us continue the Children with Diabetes website be the best it possibly can.

Yours Truly,

John Ratzenberger
