[IP] RE: insulin-pumpers-digest V8 #592
To the self proclaimed "Sometimes a real witch"! You have done a very great
thing. I only have one but I would hand carry another
to Michael if I had one. I hope that there is a "Christmas Angel" out there
somewhere! I also know that this person who you have
written about needs a little help right now. Thanks for your involvement. Merry

Subject: [IP] Plea for a pump
Ok, I know that I already have a pump, and LOVE IT DEARLY! I would not be
able to willingly give it up! I respond and post to IP more than once a week.
Sometimes I am a real witch, others times I might help others also. Maybe
today my brain is completely "up to date" on something that has been not
necessarily "bothering me" but a "concern" to me FOR someone else here on IP.
will not mention names, so this might make it easier for the MUCH NEEDED
recipient. There is a person on this list, that is a T1, this person has been
having more than there fair share of major problems attaining a pump. I know
that there are "pump hoarders" 0ut there! You know who you are! If you
happen to have 2, maybe even 3 pumps in your possession (legally I hope) and
appreciate what your pump has done for you, then maybe you could "donate" one
of the pumps (not certain brand or anything, just working) to a much needed
person on this list. You can send the pump and any available info (manuals,
etc.) to Michael. and this pump can then be given to a IPer that is in
DESPERATE need of a pump! This person that "donates" a working pump to
whether able to afford to give a monetary donation or not, should consider
themselves part of the "Christmas Angel" program. Please take this "plea" to
heart ONLY IF you have more than you are currently using of pumps! Think of
happy you were when you got your first pump and got away from MDI, think of
how happy this can make a very desperate family for a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS!
Thanks for listening to my plea for a fellow IPer.. Anyone with "info" should
contact Michael about how to "donate a pump." Thanks all.
