Abby's All Stars, a non-profit organization, was founded in 2007 with the goal to raise funds to help families offset the out of pocket uninsured medical expenses due to Juvenile Diabetes.
A very dear friend of ours, Abby, was 3 years old when diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes. We saw, through her, how many out of pocket expenses a family may encounter when trying to control this disease on a daily basis.
Even though Abby's parents had insurance there were still items not covered, such as, pumps, infusion sets, annulas, syringes, glucose meters and strips. Imagine if you had this disease and you didn't have insurance. That simple statement is what started our foundation.
We have all walked in JDRF Walks to Cure Diabetes and will continue to do so because funding for research is crucial! But, in the meantime we saw a different need, to help with these unavoidable expenses, and we wanted to do so directly in our community.
