Hi, my name is Michelle. My daughter Michelle (Chell) was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes May of 2004.
Recently, I have done a video for Children who's parents insurance companies have denied them the CGM. This upset me very much. So much techology out there yet insurance companies dont help. We were lucky, my daughters insurance company did pick up the CGM for her.
I am very concerned about the other 25,600 children out there. One of our local TV station was running a contest, "PAY IT FORWARD" Even though my video did not win, this was a wonderful oportunity for me to tell about these other children who are in need of the CGM.
My future dreams is to help each one of these children along with many more children who's insurance company deny them.

Chell started pumping today, fully with Insulin, we never did start with saline. We went to McDonalds for lunch after pump training, it was so funny Chell is looking all over in her purse and in my purse for her insulin pen. Told her she does have to have it now, since she has the pump. She forgot already.
What is Chell pumping with: MM 722 purple
