Hello all, My son has been using the OmniPod for about 9-10 months. He use to be physically more active, but now he doesn't do much. I can tell that at times he wants to get in the pool. But he doesn't want to deal with the hassle. The Pod comes…Continue

Diabetes: What If?

Posted by Paul Cathcart on September 2, 2014 at 3:37am 2 Comments

I've started a personal campaign to raise money for the Diabetes Hands Foundation. I'll be releasing music video parodies of songs and changing the lyrics to be diabetes-themed!

All of the money goes DIRECTLY to DHF and is tax deductible.

Hope…
