[IP] starting a support group



Craig, I hope you will start a local support group, they are WONDERFUL! I
try to get our group together once a month, it's NOT easy! If you talk to
some of the local restaurants they may HOST you for a discount. We keep ours
with 74 families on a local e-mail list almost completely SOCIAL :) Maybe
10-15 families will come at one event. Every once in a while we might have a
guest speaker (like the Gluco Watch Rep) but again, it'll be a PARTY. People
need to TALK TALK TALK TALK, and know they are not alone, and meet people
that share the same concerns.

Put a note on the local cable channel, and put some flyers in the diabetes
clinics in town, you'll get calls! :)

GOOD LUCK!

If  9 out of 10 people that read this say NO, we still raise $300,000 this
year for CWDF.
If  9 out of 10 people that read this say YES, we raise 3 MILLION this year
to fund a porcine islet cell transplantation trial.
Are you with us? http://www.fundsfordiabetes.org

Subject: [IP] a HUGE thank you :)

This thank you goes out to EVERYBODY who made me feel
like one of you (US!!  :)), and especially to all of
you who sent me an email of welcome directly to my
personal account. I have to say that the time you have
all given me has been very helpful, enlightening, and
a true gift that I could not have received otherwise.
As the result of the welcome and support I have
received from all of you, I am thinking of starting a
Pump support group here in Bufffalo, NY in my spare
time this summer (somewhere after the end of the
semester, most likely :))

It has been a joy to check my email the last few days,
because everytime I have done so, I have received 3-5
new WELCOME ABOARD!! letters. I look forward to
keeping in touch with all of my new found friends who
deal with DM on a daily basis.

Take care, and keep those cards/letters/emails/ and
care flowing.

Sincerely,
Craig
