Day 14

Day 14..
Well when the kids were at Phoenix Childrens Hospital, someone from JDRF comes and gives them a backpack full of information, a plush bear (with all of the injection sites colored different colors) , a video, some books, cards, ect.. Lots of fun stuff..

 JDRF- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation JDRF has built a nationwide network of Advocates who are dedicated to finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. We are all working together to advance the search for a cure faster and more effectively. JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is now the largest charitable supporter of T1D research. The goal of JDRF research is to improve the lives of all people affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners who share this goal. Anyway its a great program..

 Madi was very excited to get her very own backpack... But they were all out when she was in the she actually got hers in the mail.. She opened it and got the same bear the Craig got.. We though it would be cool if she got a girl bear...Well they apparently dont make girl bears anymore.. so .....we made our own!! We took the bear she got and made a dress for her...The bear is named Rufus and comes with a book about Rufus and diabetes.. Well meet Coconut (I dont know why she is named that!! Madi chose it:)

The special thing about this bear is that it has patches in all of the areas that the kids get their shots..So the kids can see on the bear as well as on them...

  Rufus and Coconut...

 Madi was very excited:)
