Variety 5 Pillars – Medical Supplies

Medical Supplies are a core pillar of Variety’s grant funding. These medical supplies and equipment are crucial and life-changing for the children and family. Variety provides things like hearing aids, specials beds for children who are prone to seizures and also Continues Glucose Monitors that are life-changing equipment for children with Type 1 Diabetes. Dr. Tom Elliot, BC Diabetes Medical Director, speaks with Global BC to express the urgent needs for CGM’s as they are very expensive and not covered by MSP. These machines monitor the blood sugars of a child and give parents peace of mind that their child is safe not having to get up in the middle of the night to check on them and also saving the child pricking their finger multiple times a day to check their levels. Please donate today provide a child with this life changing equipment by calling 310-KIDS or donate online at 310-KIDS today.
