To help raise fund for Fern's Type 1 medical expenses.
Gorgeous little Fern was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at only 19 months old, a time while other toddlers are playing with not a care in the world. Mum and Dad, Lisa and Robbo, found out only after Fern went into severe diabetic ketoacidtosis - if they had not picked it up in time, they could have lost Ferny that weekend. Fern is recovering and is now living life with a pump & dexcom which will give Fern the freedom to be a child.
This page is set up to help fund the extra medical expenses for the Robinson family that aren't government funded, as well as the Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitor that has a running cost of $5,000 per year. Type 1 diabetes will be a life long condition for Fern, but hopefully this will help lessen the financial pressure for the family a little.
In type 1 diabetes, the insulin-making cells in the pancreas are destroyed and not able to make enough insulin. Type 1 diabetes is mainly diagnosed in childhood, and is not caused by being overweight or eating sweet foods.
Friend of the family - our babies were born a week apart.
