Story Behind Grandma’s Hands
Like a great many of you, our lives have been affected by Diabetes. Our grandson was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was just 18 months old. Now 9 years later he is enjoying the freedom and benefits of using an insulin pump and is the official tester of Grandma’s Hands Insulin Pump related products. Shortly after he received his insulin pump, we were surprised that there was a shortage of quality made and reasonable priced insulin pump related products on the internet. As a result, in 2009 Grandma’s Hands website was launched. Since that time we have been selling our products online and at Diabetes fundraising events in Ontario. Even with government allowances for insulin pumps and their related supplies it is still expensive to live with Diabetes. With that in mind we have and will always keep our products at affordable prices.
Why buy Grandma’s Hands Products?
When purchasing diabetes related products at Grandma’s Hands you are supporting necessary research to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. At the end of our fiscal year, a portion of our Diabetes related product sales is donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Canada. Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. JDRF is a leader in setting the agenda for diabetes research worldwide, and is the largest charitable funder and advocate of Type 1 Diabetes research.
Recently we have started to offer custom made Ostomy Bag Covers. This was brought about because we have identified there was a lack of quality Canadian Made products on the internet. Just like our diabetes related products, i.e.; Insulin Pump Pouches, a portion of our Ostomy related sales are donated to an Ostomy related charity.
