We know that hearing “you have type 1 diabetes” is tough for everyone in the family. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is here to support you. The ADA Courage-Wisdom-Hope Kit for children with type 1 diabetes helps every kid feel smart, brave and ready to live a great life.
This free kit cannot replace the need to see your health care professional team, but it may help fill in some blanks. Contents include:
- Parent Guide
- Kid’s Interactive Guide
- Sibling Guide
- Drawstring “go” bag—sized for a meter, strips, glucose tablets, snack and other necessities
- Write-on emergency contacts magnet and pen
These can be ordered by going to www.diabetes.org/newlyT1D or call (800) 342-2383. Please share with anyone that can help us spread the word. Just another way to remind families we are here to support them every step of the way!
