Bag of Hope

Created by a mother in Utah, this nationally-implemented JDRF resource not only provides concrete “tools” to enhance the family’s understanding of life with diabetes, but also provides a personal touch, through a “home visit”.


Bags of Hope contain a variety of educational and comforting support materials – some geared to the child, and some geared to their caregivers – the most popular of which is Rufus, the Bear with Diabetes; but, also includes a video, children’s books, and an Accu-Chek Blood Glucose Meter.
