Please contact Merle Gleeson to make a donation to the Type 1 Diabetes Lounge at  We are a volunteer-based organization supporting adults with Type 1 Diabetes, creating a forum for education, networking, and support.  Your financial support will ensure the continuation of these valuable monthly meetings.
