Since I haven't yet found a way to kick this habit, Type 1 Diabetes, I am unfortunately still reliant on a little pump filled with insulin to keep me alive. That sweet unassuming little pump costs $7000!

Since I haven't yet found a way to kick this habit, Type 1 Diabetes, I am unfortunately still reliant on a little pump filled with insulin to keep me alive. Just days before my recent accident, where I collided with an SUV while cycling to work, my trustee pump bit the dust. Talk about a double whammy. The not so fun part is that it costs $7000 for a new one! No joke.

I'll get straight to the bits. The warranty is up, I am not covered by any benefit plan, and no, government health care does not help with these sorts of things. Thankfully I've been approved for financial assistance through the company, bringing the cost down to a modest $5000 ;) . That's awesome and significant, but I still need a lot of help to get me there.

The pump is a pretty big expense for me as it is right now and since my accident on Feb 6th, I incurred some significant injuries and have not been able to go back to work. I am paying for injury therapy out of pocket and will say that I am struggling to make it as it is.

Currently I am on a "Loaner Pump" from the company, since yes I wear it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. April 24th is the deadline before I either have to buy a new one or they take it back. Anything I can make by then, will be used for a down payment and anything that comes after will go towards monthly payments. The more I can put down, the more manageable my payment plan will be. So a BIG push now!

Welcome to a bit of my world! I am so grateful for your support and contributions.
