Among our precious clients is a local 7-year-old girl who was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She was hospitalized and would not be released into her parents’ care until they purchased $1,500 worth of medical supplies for their home.
Fortunately, HADC was able to provide the immediate supplies. But, diabetes is not just a short-term expense – monthly insulin and glucose testing strips add an extra $1,000 per month to the family’s expenses for a lifetime.
Without critical supplies, children face multiple challenges from falling behind in school to suffering serious medical complications. Learn about how you can get involved.
