The Story

I have been a Type 1 diabetic since age six, over 60 years now. I've been using the insulin pump for the past 12 years. This fundraiser is for accruing funds in order to cover the cost of monthly diabetic and heart medications, insulin pump supplies and doctor visits for the next two years.

Being missionaries in Japan for the past 36 years, our monthly income is not a guaranteed amount and varies from month-to-month. We never know exactly how much we will be receiving. So, when a monthly doctor visit, medications and insulin pump supplies come up, most always there is not enough to cover the cost. 

I've been using left-over funds from donations that were made almost two years ago when people offered donations to provide me a new insulin pump. Those funds are almost depleted.

I would encourage any Type 1 diabetic who is not currently using insulin pump therapy to consider contacting your doctor(s) and asking about it. It can change your health dramatically like it has mine.

The Lord bless you as you consider this fund raising request.

Thanks again and again for all the help my supporters have given in meeting the need of funding for my Type 1 Diabetes meds, doctor visits and insulin pump supplies. Your donations cover costs of that which is not covered by my Japanese National Health Insurance program. Monthly doctor visits, meds and supplies run anywhere from $150 to $200 a month. The $4500 goal listed here in this fundraiser as a "need" is projected for the next 3 to 4 years. 

Your donations (less the small youcaring.com fee) are 100% deposited into a special Nishi Nihon City Bank Diabetic Meds debit account and used ONLY for such needs. Please be assured that your donations are being used very wisely.

Rich blessings from our Chief Health Provider, who has moved your hearts to give toward this special need.

Thanks to everyone's support, I am a little over 1/4 of the way in obtaining funds to cover increased costs for monthly medications, supplies and doctor visits foreseen in the next three or so years. I have had Type 1 diabetes since age six, and praise God for the Joy of the Lord, that I feel has been my most effective health preservative all these years. I am so thankful for support from as far away as Alaska, the Lower 48 and even here in Japan. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
