Re: [IPk] Trustees



Hi. Moira.

My daughter, Nicola, is 10 yrs old and has been on the pump since November
last year.  I am Chairman of the Blackpool & Fylde Young Diabetic Support
Group and will be attending the conference in Blackpool also.   Like you, I
intend to speak to as many people as possible with regard to the pump. If
you need any support at all at the conference just shout!!!!!!  I'll be
there.

Regards
Bev Butterfield.
