Review for Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi, Inc., Ridgeland, MS, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Diabetes Foundation of MS was an absolute godsend when our son was diagnosed T1D on February 9th, 2019. He was 8 years old at that time, and diabetes was something we had zero experience in dealing with, living with, or even understanding. During our initial hospital stay during diagnosis, Hannah Byrd from DFM came to see Tanner and brought him all kinds of goodies. They brought a backpack full of information, books, cookbooks, coloring books, glucose monitor & test strips, and even a stuffed dog named Rufus I cannot express how much this meant for someone to care enough about us to try and help us through one of our most difficult life moments. Since then, any time i have ever had any questions or issues, our extended DFM family can either get me some answers, or point me in the direction of the help I need. They are an AMAZING group of people! The work that they're doing really does make a difference in not on the T1D's life, but the lives of their families also

Review for Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi, Inc., Ridgeland, MS, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

On February 8th, 2019, our lives were forever changed when our then 8 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Neither my husband nor myself have any experience, knowledge, or even family who has had this, therefore we were absolutely clueless about what to expect. We had no idea how to handle school issues, diet change, lifestyle changes, etc. Fortunately for us, the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi was a complete Godsend for us. An angel from the foundation showed up at my son's hospital room, day 2, bearing an armful of goodies, and information about T1D for us (a backpack full of books, diabetic cookbooks, Rufus the T1D stuffed dog, a carb counting book, a tshirt, test strips, etc). They have helped us in every way imaginable from helping our school understand how to care for and treat my son in their care, to letting us know about Camp Kandu for our son (which he now lives and breathes for May & November when we can go to Camp). They've helped connect us with others in Mississippi dealing with the same things we are, in addition to being our go to for many questions that still pop up for us sometimes. This Foundation does things for kids fighting diabetes daily, at the same time as offering support for the parents. It has meant the world to us, and to our son along with many other MS T1D warriors.
