Jerry the Bear is a new age teaching tool for children with Type 1 (aged 4 – 9+). A Type 1 diabetes diagnosis is hard enough as the entire family must learn all that T1D management entails. Jerry can help ease that burden. By learning how to care for Jerry the Bear, a newly diagnosed child is empowered to care for herself. In an effort to make Jery the Bear accessible to all families, Beyond Type 1 has created the Give-a-Bear Program.
