Five-year-old Sean McKee has Type I Diabetes. Together, let’s give him the lifesaving medical equipment he needs!

When Sean was just three years old, he was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes, a lifelong disease that attacks his blood sugar levels. Since then, Sean has endured constant blood sugar checks, carb counting and shots every day.

Sean is most vulnerable to dangerous lows at night while asleep. His loving family does everything possible to provide Sean a healthy, happy childhood. In addition to the daily checks and endless expenses, his parents must check his levels 2-3 times throughout each night.

A remote, night-time glucose monitor called mySentry exists that can greatly improve Sean’s situation! For a year and half, Sean has waited for the FDA to approve the mySentry, and it finally was approved this month.

Sean should not have to wait anymore.

However, when Sean’s mom, Julie, called to order a device, she learned it costs thousands of dollars—insurance won't cover it. Let’s pitch in to make sure Sean (and his mom and dad!) can rest peacefully.

Join me in donating today to help Sean's parents provide the best care available for him. Please give any amount toward our $5,000 goal.
