A Few Words from our Volunteers


"Spending nearly 6 weeks in the Dominican Republic this summer changed my life. My tiny diabetes world expanded, and I came away with a new perspective on what the big issues are. No matter how you take care of yourself and your diabetes, we all go through the same thing. We all have the same struggles, and the camps and outreach programs gave everyone involved a sense of belonging."

-Louise Kyle, AYUDA Volunter 2013,
Volunteer Mentor 2014


"Seeing that I had raised all the money I needed (to fulfill the AYUDA fundraising requirements) gave me a sense of pride and fulfillment, as I was able to work toward and accomplish a goal for a cause I strongly believed in. Fundraising forced me to step out of my shell and helped me enhance my people skills, which empowered me to continue being a leader…"

-Melanie Goldring, AYUDA Volunteer 2012-13, Volunteer Mentor 2014
