Walk team "dandelion wishes" has donated $1,000. to the 2013 Nanaimo Walk for the Cure and donated a pump to someone who does not have insurance.

This store is dedicated to funding research for Type 1 diabetes via Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

100% of the profits are donated to the Walk for the Cure each summer.

Dani's team was started in the spring 2002 when our % year old daughter was diagnosed. She struggled with injections and eating issues for 2 years before she began using an insulin pump. "Pumping" for the last 11 years has enabled our daughter to live a much better life.

TYPE 1 DIABETES CAN"T BE CONTROLLED; only managed by the knowledge of how to act like a pancreas. Scientists and doctors do not know enough yet to consistently anticipate how to adjust for all the factors involved in maintaining a healthy blood glucose level. This is especially true during times of growth creating a childhood full of needle pokes and constantly adjusting for high and lows.

However, we do know that as more money is poured into research, newer and better ways of managing will be discovered. This will help minimize complications such as blindness, kidney disease or nerve damage to name a few.

Sugarfree Jewellery is one of our endeavours to make Dani's (and so many others) wish for a cure come true.

******* A cure for Type 1 diabetes. *******
