Guerreros Azules y compra una máscara para apoyar a niños con Diabetes tipo 1
About this campaign
November is Diabetes Awareness Month and blue its official color. This is a special month to recognize and support low income children with type 1 Diabetes in Venezuela. Type 1 Diabetes is a serious and stressful disease to manage. My child’s blood-sugar level must constantly be tested and insulin administered every single day. T1D causes a lot of worry because no matter how vigilant we are, my child’s blood sugar can still go high or low. And, this can lead to dangerous long-term complications like kidney disease, heart attack or stroke. That’s why I am fundraising for Venezuelan NGO "Guerreros Azules" to support educational activities and access to diabetes supplies that will make it safer and easier to live with this disease, until there is a cure. Will you please help us reach our goal by buying a mask today? It would mean the world to all of our little Guerreros Azules. Guerreros Azules was created in Venezuela by four moms with kids with type 1 Diabetes. They soon recognized that the best chance their kids had at succeeding with their treatment was with education and emotional support for their family. Diabetes type 1 does not have a cure and needs optimal treatment to to avoid complications. Guerreros Azules is committed to provide educational and emotional support to children with type 1 Diabetes in Venezuela. Specifically with Educational camps and forums, providing blood sugar monitoring supplies and insulin, creating a database of Venezuelan kids with diabetes and sponsoring healthcare worker training and awareness campaigns.
