JDRF’s Bag of Hope program is a free resource which provides information and support to families with children who are newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (within the last 3 months).
The Bag of Hope is filled with relevant diabetes education materials, some intended to communicate directly with the child and some geared toward the adult caregiver(s), including (but not limited to): Rufus, the Bear with Diabetes, Rufus Comes Home book, A First Book for Understanding Diabetes, other reference books, a DVD, and an Accu-Chek® Aviva Compact Blood Meter.
