RE: [IP] Does the color matter

It is all truth - and in the context of poor children in Russia or elsewhere
in the world, pump color is not important.
But... our 'western' society is governed by consuming habits - packaging and
color is of main importance!
You probably do not change your clothing color or style based on the poor
economy status or 75% of the world.
So, pump's color, human engineering, stylish look is very important since we
are connected to that instrument 24/7...
So, we can help those poor Russian children, and still care about our pump
color as well.
By the way, my pump is MM507 with gray color. For me, it is not so

Subject: [IP] Does the color matter

I Joined insulin pumpers on Fri the 30th. There has been more things about
the color of the pump than anything. So what about the color? What about
these poor kids and people in Russia or other places that don't even have
insulin, or syringes,and even testing supplies.They probably die. I thank
God for allowing this to be invented and that he made it available for me,
and espically for a child, that has diabetes, at least they can go through
their childhood with a pump.We have alot to be thankful about. I have had so
much more freedom with my pump.I can wait and eat late, skip meals, and do
so much more with the pump. We need to figure out away to be helping the
ones without.
Sorry don't mean to be ugly, but it's the truth.
