Disaster Response Effort for Children and Adults Living with Diabetes.
ABSOLUTELY NO COST FOR DIABETIC MEDICATION, SUPPLIES OR IF NEEDED, TRANSPORTATION TO BE ARRANGED AT NO COST
Many in Southwest Florida who live with diabetes and are insulin dependent have been left in crisis due to Hurricane Ian. Being unable to keep insulin at a cool temperature, or the complete loss of an insulin supply is life threatening. This collaborative effort offers free medical-screenings, diabetic supplies, and replacement insulin without charge.
A group of Southwest Florida organizations, with expertise in diabetes management, and affiliation through Diabetes Alliance Network have formed a disaster response effort that is able to provide immediate relief for those in need who live with diabetes.
(HADC) Help A Diabetic Child (adults and children) has coordinated with Carol Atkinson, Director, Insulin For Life, USA, Inc., and Dr. John C. Querci of DDC Health Care, in Bonita Springs, FL. Supplies arrived 10/12/2022. A value much greater than $105,000 in diabetic medications and supplies are available at no cost to the patient.
Dr. John Querci of DDC Health Care has volunteered to serve the medical care needs for this collaborative crisis response team. Anyone in need who lives with diabetes are able to receive a medical screening, insulin and medical supplies. These services are currently offered without charge, including free transportation if needed.
Hours 8am to 5pm Monday – Friday, by appointment only. Same day appointments available. Supplies available at time of appointment or within 24 hours. Patients do not need to qualify for these supplies but will have to be examined by the doctor.
HADC is a 501(c)3 dedicated to helping children (and adults) in need with diabetic supplies, insulin, medical office visits and mental health services.
