The Michelle McGann Fund
Supporting Diabetes Education and Awareness
The Michelle McGann Fund’s generous donors make diabetes education, awareness and support possible. We are committed to helping families manage diabetes and individuals live strong, healthy lives.
While diabetes research plays an important role, we’re focused on helping families today. Complications resulting from poor diabetes treatment and lack of awareness and support include hypoglycemia, heart attacks, strokes, blindness and vision problems, kidney disease and more. In 2013, the cost of diabetes reached nearly $250 billion.
Dealing with symptoms, getting good treatment and paying for costly diabetes management overwhelms newly diagnosed individuals and their families.
We help individuals with grants for medication, diabetic equipment, support programs and more. The Michelle McGann Fund also supports healthcare institutions and nonprofit organizations offering innovative programs and services that drive diabetes awareness, education and support.
Our goal is to promote awareness of optimal diabetes treatments and effective disease management so that today’s children become tomorrow’s diabetes success stories.
