[IP] help requested

Hello everyone  I ran into this person in a chat and she is wanting to try 
and find a endo that is willing to help her put her son on the pump.  If 
anyone knows of a Endo in her area that could help more PLEASE send me an 

email @ redacted

Thank you


>Thank you so much for putting your valuable time into this.  I have
