My son is type 1 diabetic. We found out about a year and a half ago. He is now to the point that we are getting an insulin pump. There is a new one that has a monitor that communicates with it. It updates and adjust insulin every 5 sec. The problem is that insurance will only pay 80% pump cost and 0% glucose monitor. I am left with $2500 bill.
I am thinking of trying to get sponsors and doing a ride across the state. If I have money above the pump cost I will be putting it to the Tour de Cure.
Is this okay? I haven't been involved with many fundraisers other than just donations and rides. Can you do this as an individual? I make a decent salary, but it seems like it is a never ending medical expense. Work has me back in school, which means the 400+ hrs of OT went away.
I am not trying to be a whine bag, I just want to see if I can get some relief and do something I like.
