Hi! I’m Liam Scott. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 7. I am aware how lucky I have been to have access to the supplies I need to keep myself healthy. There are so many people who have limited or no access to the insulin and glucose testing supplies that they need just to survive, especially in the developing world. My family and I are climbing Mount Rainier and are hoping to use our climb to raise awareness and funds for the work that Insulin for Life-USA is doing. They provide insulin and other supplies to the developing world and emergency supplies to areas affected by natural disasters in the U.S. and around the world. They are saving the lives of people with type 1 diabetes every single day. My goal is to raise $10,000. Please donate here if you can. They also accept donations of insulin and supplies. To find out how to donate these items, please visit their website. To date, I have raised $2000 and, with the help of Camp Surefire and participants at our events, I have shipped over $10,000 in supplies to Insulin for Life-USA. Contributions are tax deductible. Thank you to everyone who has supported Insulin for Life-USA and their life-saving mission!
