Honest question. If you'd like to add what you would like to see JDRF do for you, in light of their move away from being so cure oriented, I'd like to read that too. We received a Bag of Hope at diagnosis. If I recall correctly, it contained an Aviva meter (Accu-Chek), a Rufus and book (JDRF/Accu-Chek), a flyer from CWD, pump information from various companies, and the Pink Panther book. As far as I know, that's it. In three plus years, that's it. I get the "local" newsletter and see the million dollar galas in Chicago and feel bitter that my area (which includes the second largest city in Illinois) is not wealthy enough for even a little local chapter. That's right. I was shocked to learn that there was no JDRF chapter in our nearest Big Town (metropolitan population around 250,000). I was told that we were too near Chicago (2+ hours from downtown), and because nearest Big Town is economically depressed, the fundraising opportunities there were not great enough for a local chapter. As for what I would like to see from JDRF (if they're moving away from cure, cure, cure)...I'd like to see more funding of smaller researchers and companies with truly innovative ideas that would otherwise never see the light of day. I'd like to see help for people who cannot afford supplies. I'd like to see more support for the newly diagnosed and for young adults heading out on their own for the first time. I'd like to see a nationwide blitz of education and awareness (where is our pink ribbon?). I'd like to see chapters in smaller cities and towns. Even if we can't put on a million dollar gala, I'd like to think we're still worth something.
