[IPn] A WOPPER of a challenge
Greetings Pumpers and friends,
Our Fall pledge drive is off to a good start. Yesterday''s challenge
has been matched and another WHOPPER CHALLENGE has been made by
forum member from NEW YORK
NEW YORK will match your donation to Insulin Pumpers dollar for
dollar up to a total of $1,000.00. Your donation will be worth double
it's value to Insulin Pumpers. Can you contribute $25.00 which will
be worth $50 when matched by New York? If $25 is more than your
budget can manage, how about $15 or $10, whatever you can afford.
Please contribute today.
What does Insulin Pumpers mean to you? Send me your thoughts in a
private email to share with the other forum members.

1. I learned about the Frio pack, which enabled me to spend countless
hours on the beach in Miami and New Jersey this summer, without
worrying about my insulin over-heating.
2. I've helped family and friends by directing them to this site to
get more information.
3. I learned about the book "Pumping Insulin." I read it twice before
I got my pump, and with the knowledge I gained have had an almost
effortless transition to the pump.
4. When I was on Amazon to buy the book, I saw another one suggested
called "Diabetes Burnout" by Dr. William Polonsky. Reading that
combined with going on the pump, has totally changed the way I feel
about my diabetes. I no longer hate it.
5. Everything combined has contributed to better physical and mental
health, including a 6.2 on my AIC, with only a handful of low blood
sugars in a three month period, compared with 7 or 8 a week.
Thank you. (The check is in the mail ... literally!)
