Back to Home What's New for 31 July 2005

Of Continuing Interest

  1. Last week marked the 10 year anniversary of our weekly What's New page and email newsletter. Contents of all previous newsletters are online, and while many of the old links no longer work, it's fun to look back. You can also read a very brief history of CWD. To help us celebrate, we invite readers to send a postcard highlighting where you live, with your name and who has diabetes in your family, to:
    Children with Diabetes
    5689 Chancery Place
    Hamilton, OH 45011
    We'll create scrapbooks of the postcards and show them at the conferences we attend, and we'll scan selected cards and show them online.

  2. Our insulin is not a cure t-shirts are the perfect accompaniment to our insulin is not a cure red bracelets. Proceeds help fund research (through the Diabetes Research Institute), scholarships for kids with diabetes (through the Education for Children with Diabetes Foundation), and diabetes supplies for families in need (through the Supplies for Children with Diabetes Foundation). Use our order form to get yours.

  3. The Family Support Network includes over 1,290 families from all 50 states and 38 countries who are there to help. If you're new to diabetes, looking for a baby sitter, or need a college parent, the Family Support Network will help you connect with families near you. If you haven't joined, please become part of the Family Support Network.

  4. Diabetes Heroes, by Animas Corporation and Nicole Johnson Baker, celebrates the extraordinary efforts by individuals that make living with diabetes easier and more bearable. Heroes win $1,000 and other great prizes.
