[IP] kids should carry DIABETES/PUMP ID cards



Kathy - great advice!

I talked with our 12 year old about the scenario and we did some
role-playing. She said she would just pull out her laminated nurse pass and
show it to whoever at school was trying to take her pump or supplies away.
We also discussed her asking to be taken to the nurse or the principal FIRST
before anything was removed, and then be able to call Mom and Dad.

...always best to be prepared! It's just a shame it had to happen ...
hopefully ALL will learn from this mistake, including schools around the
country and it will be forever avoided..

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.

I would imagine that each child should carry around some type of id together
with a note with instructions as to what to do if there are problems and
show it to whomever they are with, a teacher, an administrator, in gym, art
class, music, etc. etc. etc.
