Testimonials - Help a Diabetic Child




Thank you for supporting me with my insulin. It’s really helpful in these days. I can’t even put into words how grateful I am for you. God Bless You!


We had help a couple of months ago from HADC as we had no insurance. I thought when we got the ObamaCare that it would help but it seems that they are trying to get him on state help and so we are back at no insurance for him right now. It will cost me 900.00 for both his insulin and over 100.00 for test strips. Our doctor thought I might be able to get a few supplies for my son until I can figure out what insurance he will have either state or ObamaCare.


American Diabetes Association told me about your company. My daughter just got an insulin pump last month, and now they canceled her insurance. I'm so upset and worried for her. She takes Humalog, I don't know how I'm going to afford all her medicine and supplies. I have been looking at all the insurance plans and they are so expensive, it's crazy. If you are middle class, then it is not affordable. The cheapest plan I can find is $4715 per child before they pay for any medication and doctor visits, and I have 3 children. Florida Kid Care is not affordable if you have to pay the full payout. I think its nuts they go by gross and not net income and don't take into consideration your school loans, mortgage, car payment, utilities, etc. I'm sorry, I'm just upset and worried.


I have a 9-year-old daughter with T1D. She has been on Medicaid or Healthy Kids for her entire life. She was diagnosed 5 years ago. We recently got kicked off of healthy kids and put onto a full pay plan, we went from $20.00 a month to $372.00 a month for insurance. I am looking for some assistance with her insulin and diabetes supplies. I went to fill her insulin prescription for the first time with her new plan and the pharmacy told me it would cost $568.00 for a month’s supply. Her plan does not cover her pump supplies or test strips either. I can’t afford that.


I just calculated by insurance and I am going to be paying $737.00 a month through my company and that’s the most I’ve ever paid for insurance. That is almost two weeks of my paychecks just to have insurance, I’m not sure what else I can do.

Tami & Joe

Thank you both for your support for me and helping me buy needed supplies. It really helps take stress and pressure off me and my mom know that we have people like you that will help us in troubled times. It is truly a blessing for us and I look forward to giving back as much as I can.

Stephanie and Courtney

To all those involved: My daughter Courtney and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kind contribution, so Courtney is able to attend Session 2 at Camp Winona. As a nurse, I was planning to volunteer my time at session 2 to assist these precious kids. I did this last summer and truly enjoyed the experience. As a volunteer, my daughter would also be able to attend the camp for free. Unfortunately, due to my own medical issues I will have to undergo unexpected surgery just before the start of camp and will be unable to volunteer my time. Which in turn, means Courtney would be unable to attend camp for free. As a single mom with 3 kids finances are tight. Because of the generosity of people such as Lowell and Nancy Lohman and their donations to Help a Diabetic Child (HADC) Courtney is able to attend camp with the sponsorship of HADC. Thank you again from Courtney and me for all you do for the community and this life-altering opportunity. The camp provides the opportunity for these beautiful children to be "normal kids" while learning to own their disease and take charge. Have a blessed week.


When our 7-year-old daughter was diagnosed with T1D, Help a Diabetic Child Foundations was there for us when we were told that we needed to have $1,500 worth of diabetic supplies before our daughter would be released from the hospital. We already had to borrow from a loan to pay for the hospital deductible and didn't know how we would be able to pay. Thanks to Tami and her foundation, they bought the necessary supplies for us. We will forever and eternally be grateful to them!


Thank you so much for what you are doing for my son! The Sure Comfort syringes are only 30 units. Those are the most comfortable though - and he can use them for the smaller dosages. Thank you so much. You are unburdening me more than you know. God bless you and your family, Tami.
