Review for Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi, Inc., Ridgeland, MS, USA
The Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi is such a blessing to me and my family. My precious little miracle has many diagnosis including type 1 diabetes mellitus. At the time of diagnosis, the DFM reached out to us and offered their support and lifelong friendship. They spoke with me and sent my baby girl a backpack full of educational tools to help us understand and manage her diabetes which also included an amazing teddy bear that not only gives comfort but is also designed to teach the kids how to give insulin and finger pokes. The support is amazing. If I have a question or a need, all I have to do is call or message. It's such a comfort. The greatest blessing to me is that we are struggling with issues with our supply company. My baby did not receive her supplies for almost 2 months. The test strips are costly. I was so worried about what I was going to do. I had only 7 strips left. We test 5-8 times a day. I called DFM and told them what was going on. They purchased strips for my baby and overnighted them to me. I cannot put into words how much of a blessing this was! Took such an extreme burden off me! The DFM is more than an organization. They are loving, caring people who go the extra mile to support and help families. I thank God for them!
