Re: [IP] Novolog insulin site mentions Insulin Pumpers



Maybe this would be good time to bring up CFC. If IP was a part of the
Combined Federal Campaign federal employees could elect once a year during
the CFC campaign to have  $X deducted from their paycheck and sent directly
to  IP. This is the most painless way to give, and every year I increase
what I give. last year was almost $400, next campaign I'm planning to
increase that by 25% (probably $520.00)
