Do You or Your Children Wear Insulin Pumps? Why Not Dress Them Up Today!

I am so excited to share Pump Wear Inc. with you.  I am always looking for unique products and services, and with a background in public health, there are few products that I back that deal with health conditions.  But, with the large number of young children and teens with diabetes, and some having to wear insulin pumps, I have never seen a creative way to conceal the insulin pumps they have to carry with them.  But, Pump Wear Inc. has come to the rescue.  They have created unique ways for kids and adults to conceal/carry their insulin pump.  So, if you know someone who uses an insulin pump, please share this post with them.
More About Pump Wear Inc.:

Pump Wear Inc.  Where 2 moms create a unique fun way for children and adults who wear an insulin pump.  Julie DeFruscio’s daughter went on an insulin pump at the age of 3 and Julie found that there was no way for a child this age to carry the small beeper like device that was her daughters life line.  That’s when Julie and her best friend Dawn Juneau decided that they could make wearing an insulin pump fun and creative.

Wearing and insulin pump should be a positive experience and that is exactly what they have done.

Today Pump Wear Inc. offers over 800 various ways to wear an insulin pump, even expanding into team walk t-shirts, diabetes awareness items and medical alert jewelry.
