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

Rating: 5 stars  

When my son was diagnosed with type one diabetes, I felt we were going to be alone in this battle. And let me tell you, for a five year old, it’s a big battle. We were introduced to the Foundation a few years into diagnosis when my son was admitted for what felt like the 100th time for DKA. While in the hospital, I filled out many forms. Mainly to give me something to do while Alex slept. One form was The Diabetes Foundation. A week later, we received a package full of goodies. I found out there was a way to help raise awareness and funds for all diabetics in Mississippi. On top of that, there was a camp we could go to for the kids to let loose and have fun and for their family to learn more than I thought possible. Because of this, my son opened up a lot more, my youngest child, Toby, was test in the antibodies, and we know to be on the look out for his future in possibly having diabetes, and that we had an actual family to lean on. That is what the foundation is for us, a family. We are humbled and love them so much for all they have done for our family through the years. Thank you all so much for all you do and continue to do. Because of you, we have more friends and family who understand exactly what we face day to day. Because of you, we have someone to lean on in hard times. Because of you, we are able to help others through their hard times and struggles. You were and still are our blessings. Thank you a million times.
