[IPk] Help with April and other wishes

Hello all you IPer's,

Please read all sections about 
Fund Raising
Your Pictures
Infusion Site Pictures
Physician Referrals

I want to thank all of the list members that contributed to the month 
of March and made it a successful fund raising month instead of
being a disaster like February, and ask those of you who have not yet 
contributed this year to open your hearts and your wallets for 
Insulin Pumpers. Your support of Insulin Pumpers will enable us to 
help additional kids and adults with diabetes by keeping this forum 
on the internet healthy and solvent. IP is supported entirely by 
donations and unless a pot of gold falls out of the sky, we must 
raise money on a continuous basis to fund ongoing expenses for 
mundane things like rent, phone, and internet access.

Please see the bar graph at the bottom of:


to see how IP is doing this month and prior months. Even a few 
dollars will help. With almost 2300 list members if everyone sent a 
dollar a month we'd be in great shape!!! To donate on-line, visit:


If you'd like to send a check by snail-mail, the address is there 
too, or simply mail to:

Insulin Pumpers
4600 El Camino Real - Suite 206B
Los Altos, CA 94022

On another subject or two.....
I haven't asked in a while, so for all of you list members -- send me 
your pictures. Pictures of your smiling - happy - pumper faces or 
those of your kids (for you parents out there) will be added to your 
profile in the MEMBERS ONLY area of the web site at:


Lots of members (including ALMOST all of our admins) have sent in 
pictures. To put faces with the names, go have a look. Pictures can 
be submitted via e-mail in most formats.... pcx, gif, jpg and so 
on... OR -- mail prints to me at the IP address above. 

While we are on the subject of pictures, send me pictures of your 
infusion sites as well. I'm putting to together a pictorial essay of 
where to install infusion sites, so any pictures are welcome. I can 
edit out any XX rated stuff, so don't worry about that. All pictures 
are anonymous and faces will be deleted if present.
All you PARENTS out there. Please send stories of how the pump has 
changed the life of your child. There are over 200 kids on the list 
and only a handful of stories about these marvelous pump successes. 
A story about your child will bring hope to some other parent 
searching the internet trying to help their own child with diabetes. 
Besides, it's always nice to print them out and shove them in the 
face of that person who said "Johnny is not old enough for a pump". 
Grrrrrr........ makes me angry!
ALL PUMPERS -- there are almost 2300 of you now. The Pump Doc's list 
has a measly 171 doctors on it!!!!! There can't be THAT much overlap 
in physician care for all you good folks???? I bet there must be at 
least 1000 docs represented by the pumpers on this mail list. PLEASE, 
Please, please -- put your doc on the referral list -- you will 
certainly help some future pumper looking for a friendly endo.

Very Best Regards,
