The JDRF Bag of Hope Program

December 16, 2010

We are excited to announce that JDRF’s Bag of Hope Program will once again be sponsored by Roche Diagnostics.

This great resource is the cornerstone of JDRF’s Outreach Program and provides invaluable support to newly diagnosed families. JDRF’s Bag of Hope program is a free resource (thanks to Roche Diagnostics) which provides information and support to families with children who are newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (within the last 3 months). The Bag of Hope is filled with relevant diabetes education materials, some intended to communicate directly with the child and some geared toward the adult caregiver(s), including (but not limited to): Rufus, the Bear with Diabetes, Rufus Comes Home book, A First Book for Understanding Diabetes, other reference books, a DVD, and an Accu-Chek® Aviva Compact Blood Meter.

JDRF’s Bag of Hope is available to newly diagnosed families (within the last 3 months) and may be obtained through Children’s Diabetes 101 Class and at the Greater Dallas Chapter. Although we are unable to provide Bags of Hope to those who have had type 1 diabetes longer than three months, the JDRF Greater Dallas Chapter can still provide valuable support and resources for you and your family through our dedicated and compassionate volunteers and staff.  Please visit our website to learn more about available resources and programs available to your family.
