Children with Type 1 Diabetes in California public schools

Dear Friends,

I got an e mail from the Valadez Family this evening, and think its important for everyone to read their message and take action.


We are a fellow diabetes family in Chula Vista writing to families, friends and relatives of children with diabetes. We are all aware of the school nursing shortage and budget cuts. Some nurses are spending only 1 or 2 days a week per school because they have been assigned to 3 schools. With the growing cases of juvenile diabetes, it’s becoming harder to provide care for our children in school. We need to pass legislation that will provide trained Diabetes Care Providers. As we all know, the worst thing you can do to a child with high blood sugar is nothing. We know about the nerve and organ damage. Please log onto www.diabetesincaschools.com, click on the “action” section, and find your political contact. Call our representatives and let them know that we need to pass this legislation. Please forward this message or call your friends and family in California to help in this important issue.

Warm Regards,

The Valadez Family

Tis the Season to give

This note came to me from a dear friend, Manny Hernandez. He is the force behind so much good for people living with Diabetes. Please give it a read, and consider giving to such an important resource. Happy Holidays!

"In 2010, we are planning more things to continue connecting people touched by diabetes and raising diabetes awareness for the benefit of the diabetic community. So I want to ask you to look back at what TuDiabetes or EsTuDiabetes have done for you in 2009, how they have helped you and, if you can afford it, to make a tax-deductible donation to support our work, so we can do more for you in 2010:

Wondering how your donation would be used? For every dollar you donate to the Diabetes Hands Foundation, nearly 50 cents are used to run TuDiabetes.org and EsTuDiabetes.org and 25 cents go to fund our diabetes awareness programs. The remainder is split between administrative expenses and fundraising almost equally.

To donate, visit the home page of TuDiabetes and select your donation amount on the "Help TuDiabetes" box in the top left or simply visit this page:
and enter your preferred donation amount.

We count on your generous donation as the year ends and wish you and your loved ones a happy holiday and a healthy 2010!"
