angel notion needs diabetes test strips

they are "one touch"

we have a "diabetes club" that meets every week
there is a healthy meal and people are educated on how to take care of the blood sugar levels
also on nutritional guidelines for control of the disease with less medication

if you are coming to playa, or know of someone coming,and want to help angel notion, this is what we need right now
all donations to angel notion are tax deductible in mexico and the US of A

thanks guys

That would be awesome Roni - I'm sure you will amuse them all with your wonderful personality.

I will look into some strips, I know they are pretty expensive, but will see what I can do.

i will check and see if there is anything in particular
but if they are in short supply, it is an ongoing need for the "club" so ya can't go wrong

thanks

My blood glucose levels have been pretty stable for a couple of years. I can do without testing for a while para ayudar diabeticos Playenses.

Con placer.

Or something like that. I am already practicing talking with them in Spanish
