Caring and Sharing with Diabetes

Campers enjoy horseback riding during the Caring and Sharing Weekend.

May 5, 2009

The second annual "Caring and Sharing Weekend" was held last weekend at the Double H Ranch in Lake Luzerne, New York.  The free three-day weekend, which is organized by Pump Wear Inc., offered 15 families in the diabetes community an opportunity to relax, bond, and become inspired. The families, who either recommended themselves or were recommended by someone else, enjoyed beautiful weather, horseback riding, swimming, campfires, lots of hugs, and memories.

Meeting challenges head-on on the ropes course.

Sponsoring this free weekend at camp for families in the diabetes community has long been a dream of the co-owners of Pump Wear Inc., Dawn Juneau and Julie DeFruscio, along with Kate Marschilok, their close friend, CDE, and mom of children with diabetes, because they understand that diabetes is draining not only emotionally, but also financially. Dawn, Julie, and Kate are grateful to the other sponsors who helped make the weekend possible, including Dr. and Mrs. James Striker, Diabetes Health, Medtronic, Animas, Omnipod, and Kate Marschilok.
