[IPn] some history

Since 1997, Insulin Pumpers has helped to develope a community where 
thousands of type 1's and their families can gather information, 
support, and courage to help manage day to day living with diabetes. 
Newly diagnosed patients and people interested in starting on an 
insulin pump can browse our extensive database of qualified, pump- 
friendly endocrinologists to select the best possible pump doc in 
their area. Additionally, the thousands of members of the IP forums 
are more than happy to share their experiences and knowledge about 
living with a pump and using this technology to manage their 
diabetes. Good examples are how the IP forums have helped hundreds of
people appeal and overturn service denials from their insurance 
companie that refused to pay for an insulin pump or medical supplies 
needed to sustain quality of life, or the countless families that 
have come to IP for assistance enforcing their 504 education plan, a 
federal statute requiring schools to accommodate diabetic children 
without disrupting their learning experience. On top of that, every 
day Insulin Pumpers provides emergency pump supplies to uninsured and
economically distressed pumpers who have no other options left.    

All of this is possible because YOU support Insulin Pumpers. November
is IP's fourth quarter pledge month. Please continute to support our 
efforts to help the diabetes community with your contribution.
