Mainetti, Mainetti & O’Connor we take pride in the fact that we are fortunate enough to give back. All
of the charities we donate to serve an important purpose in bettering
the health and wellbeing of those living with health conditions
One of the most recent fundraisers we were able to participate in was for
JDRF (formally known as Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), which
is raising money for researching new equipment, treatments and possibly
a cure for Type One Diabetes .
Type One Diabetes or T1D is typically diagnosed in children and teenagers.
Living with T1D would be a challenge for anyone, especially for a child
who may be scared or uncooperative. In order to monitor and control their
glucose levels, a person living with T1D must go through a rigorous daily
routine, including but not limiting to;
- Controlling how much and what type of food they eat and getting regular exercise
- Testing blood samples to check their blood sugar levels
- Getting insulin injections or using an insulin pump
- Constant monitoring by a their doctor to watch for any complications
JDRF hosts many fundraising events to help their cause. At Mainetti, Mainetti
& O’Connor we were happy to participate in a few of these events
that were hosted locally by local radio station, WPDH. We look forward
to more opportunities to help this and other great causes.
