Today we feature a touching message and request from our friend and brother.  He shares tragedy, heartbreak, and a simple way you can help.

Direct from Grumpy Pumper:

On Sunday the 4th of February I did something I’ve not done in many years.

In fact, I can’t remember when I last did.

I cried.


My son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

The thought of him living with diabetes upset me and made me angry.

Having to inject insulin for the rest of his life. Doing what I have to do.

But what would I do if he had been born in a less fortunate country?

A country with limited or no access to insulin?

Well. I’d have cried.


The rest of his life would be very short because there’s little access to insulin.

He’d live maybe a year. If we were lucky.

This is happening to children right now. You can help stop it.
