Bag of Hope

The Bag of Hope program is a free Outreach program designed to provide information and support to families with children who have been newly diagnosed with diabetes.

A Bag of Hope contains 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(TM), but also includes a support video, children’s books, and an Accu-Chek Blood Glucose Meter.

To request a Bag of Hope or for more information, please contact Joyce Lawson at or 317-308-4933.
