Mississippi's Walks for Diabetes!

The DFM is the only diabetes organization in Mississippi that keeps your donations in the state to help fellow Mississippians.  Your fundraising will not only help newly diagnosed children receive backpacks of information and provide a lifeline to their parents, but will also assist those with diabetes in our state get the medications and information they need in order to live well with diabetes!!  Your donations will help educate teachers about how to properly care for their students with diabetes throughout the school day, advocate for diabetes legislation, and so much more.  

If you have diabetes, or love someone who does, the DFM is already part of your support crew.  Please join the walk nearest you and be part of ours!
