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, 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
