I received word this afternoon that my friend and fellow diabetic Dustin Iris (@deejaybetes) and his parents have lost their home as a result of Hurricane Irene. And they need our help!
Dustin’s friend has started the effort to help them by setting up the “Help The Iris Family” relief fund. If you are in any position to help Dustin and his family, please consider doing so.
Pulling together to help friends in need is a hallmark of the Diabetes Online Community, and I sincerely hope that we can all work together to provide Dustin & his family with the love and support that is needed to get through this very difficult time.

If you wish to send donations by mail, please send me a message and I will provide the address for mailing them.

and has been condemned as a result.
