Hi my name is Suzanne and I am fundraising for my 3 year old son Braxton to get a Continuous Glucose Monitoring System. Braxton was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes last year on his 2nd birthday. He currently requires to have his fingers pricked with a needle to be tested every 2 hours during the day and overnight. Braxton is also Hypo unaware which means he can't tell someone if his Glucose levels start dropping to a dangerous level. A Continuous Glucose Monitor will mean he will only need to prick his fingers 3-4 times a day and will notify me when his Glucose is dropping to a dangerous level. It will also help us both get a better night sleep as we won't need to be up every 2 hours over night to wash our hands and prick his poor little callus covered fingers
