Callum’s Story

Pillar: Medical Equipment

 Callum is a 5-year-old boy who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Variety provided Callum with a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) … a small wearable device that eases the burden of T1D by providing real-time blood sugar level readings. His CGM has an alarm feature that alerts Callum’s parents if blood sugar levels are dropping low or going high allowing them to be able to remotely monitor her blood sugar levels which in turn allows Callum more independence while preventing episodes of severe hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. This lifesaving technology helps ensure that Callum stays safe and that his parents have some peace of mind.
