Tornado Relief: Diabetes Style

This morning, I learned through one of my favorite blogs, Six Until Me, that the JDRF chapter in Huntsville, Alabama is collecting supplies for people with diabetes who lost everything in the past week's storms.

The biggest needs are meters, strips, insulin and syringes.  Pump supplies, lancets, alcohol swabs, batteries for pumps and meters, glucose tabs, glucagon and ketone strips are also being collected.
All supplies must be unopened and not expired.  Don't forget to remove your personal information from the packaging.

Remember insulin must be shipped in an insulated container.

All supplies can be mailed to the Huntsville JDRF office at 2225 Drake Ave., Office 17, Suite K, Huntsville, Alabama 35805. Mark the box as D-Supplies for Tornado Relief. Address them to Victoria Cumbow and Karen Morris.

Sharing a few extra supplies this week is a unique and concrete way to ease a bit of the burden on people with diabetes who are living through this horrible disaster.
