Thank you Meritage Homes for your generous donation to Help a Diabetic Child (HADC). These funds will be used to help children in need get their diabetes medical supplies and insulin in memory of Christy Garrow who worked at Meritage Homes.
Welcome to Help a Diabetic Child
On December 22, 2010, our 16 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. We very quickly realized two very important things. The first; this disease is not one where an individual can lead a “normal” life and secondly it is costly, even with health insurance. Within a few short months we learned that there were a significant number of children in who were unable to get adequate supplies for blood glucose testing, something that must be done multiple times daily.
It was at this point where HADC was formed as a non-profit public charity with a mission to raise money to purchase testing supplies and insulin for kids in need. With that mission in mind, we began to seek funding through car washes, hot dog sales, and informational tables out side of supermarkets or any other source of nickels and dimes.

Who are we?
What is Type 1 Diabetes?
Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease for which there is no cure. There are certain cells that sense the presence of glucose (sugar) in the blood and respond by producing insulin that serves as the “gatekeeper” to the body. In T1D and for reasons yet not clear.
