JONAS A DEXCOM 'WARROR' SPARE A ROSE

Life for a Child believes that no child

should die of diabetes. Its annual Spare a

Rose campaign encourages people to buy

at least one less rose for their loved ones

on Valentine's Day and instead donate

the cost for a rose to Life for a Child.

Life for a Child uses these contributions

to provide insulin, test kit supplies and

education to young people with diabetes

in need worldwide. Just one £5 donation

can provide a month's insulin supply, and

the charity's projects support over 23,000

people in 43 countries worldwide.

Ascensia Diabetes Care, a leading

global diabetes care company and the

maker of the Contour range of blood

glucose monitoring systems, again

supported the campaign for the fourth

consecutive year. The funds raised from

the campaign enable the charity to partner

with diabetes centres in countries such as

Mauritania, Jamaica and India to provide

critical supplies, including insulin and

testing supplies, as well as much needed

diabetes education. The programme

currently supports over 22,000 young

people in 43 countries.

Ascensia has committed to match their

employees' donations up to a maximum

of one rose for every one of the company's

1,700 employees. To date Ascensia and

its employees have collectively donated

over $40,000 (£29,000) to Spare A Rose,

making it the largest corporate supporter

for this campaign to date. This donation is

equivalent to providing life-saving insulin

supplies to almost 670 children for a year.

Donations to Spare a Rose can still be

made at SPARE A ROSE.

Dexcom revealed Nick Jonas as their

newest Global Warrior during America's

recent Super Bowl event. A multi-platinum

recording artist, actor and philanthropist,

Jonas was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes

at the age of 13 and has since been an

advocate for the diabetes community.

To launch this new partnership, Dexcom

undertook its first-ever Super Bowl

commercial on DexcomGameDay.com,

which calls for better care for people with

diabetes who are still painfully pricking

their fingers to measure their glucose

levels. While the Super Bowl offers an

enormous stage to launch this important

conversation, Dexcom and Nick Jonas

will be teaming up with leading diabetes

charities in the coming weeks to continue

the discussion about better awareness,

education and access for diabetes

management technology.

"Too many people with diabetes suffer

through painful, antiquated fingerpricks

because they don't know a better way

exists," said Jonas. "I truly believe people

with diabetes deserve the absolute best

care, and that's really the spirit of my

first Super Bowl commercial. It means

so much to me to bring this message of

awareness and the need for improved

CGM access to as many people with

diabetes as possible."

While the Super Bowl offered an

enormous stage to launch this important

conversation about better awareness,

education and access for diabetes

management technology. Organizations

involved in the effort include the following

organisations: Beyond Type 1 (cofounded by Jonas), as well as Children

with Diabetes, College Diabetes Network,

JDRF International and Taking Control of

Your Diabetes.
