Rufus, Meet Jerry!
If you got a Bag of Hope, you got Rufus, complete with medi alert bracelet and patches that newly diagnosed kids can practice shots on. Rufus made me cry when we got him, but so did everything at that point.
Well, move over Rufus – now there’s Jerry!
I just heard about this modern T1 bear on the Daily Good – he still has the patches but also has a CGM, food you can feed him (and I’m guessing see the impact), and the best thing – he’s still in testing, and you can sign up to be a tester! 🙂 The site has some great pictures and quotes of kids who’ve already tried Jerry out.
I signed up and hope we get a chance – I’m curious to see if Luke takes to Jerry better than Rufus.
We tried to get Luke to do a set on Rufus, and he started crying, “No, it hurts!” (He does enjoy practicing on Mom – Dad, for some reason, hasn’t volunteered yet.)
Has anyone tried this bad bear out yet?
