No one should feel alone...especially children!

I came across this video, in support of camps for children with diabetes. Be they under the umbrella of The Canadian Diabetes Association, the American Diabetes Associates or from any other country...they are in GREAT need of your support. These are Summer/warm weather camps....that time of the year is just around the corner. Please be generous!
