    Hi all, my name is Alexis (mother of a type 1 as of 10/21/08, and grandaughter of 3 type 2s) new to the site. I have started an online petition dealing with making insulin and BG strips more accessible.
    Especailly in a time when our unemployment rate is at its highest people are struggling to pay for their insulin and strips. Once there are enough
    Signatures I will be taking it to congress. Link is below. Thank you!

    Every dime that would be used to pay for someones diabetes supplies would be taken from someone else. I think those people should be persuaded to make charitable contributions rather than to be forced by an act of congress in violation of their constitutional rights to pay for someone's medical needs.

    It's sad and shocking how hard life with diabetes can be without health insurance, or (god forbid) you live in a 3rd world country where contracting the disease is still a death sentence.
