“Jared and his foundation were angels for this T1 diabetic in a time of need. I had run out of insulin and my pharmacy was out, too, so I was panicking that my blood sugars would keep rising to dangerous levels without this essential drug. Jared rushed to get me a spare bottle as quickly as possible, sparing me a diabetic catastrophe. They refused payment, only asking that I “pay it forward.” The more I’ve learned about Jared, the more I’ve been floored by his selfless behavior. Most adults wouldn’t even be moved to crusade for better assistance for diabetics, yet this young man wants to make a difference for the millions affected by this disease. So not only is he an angel, but an INSPIRATION.”

The Jared Kuper Diabetes Foundation was there for me when I needed them at one of the scariest moments of my life. I didn't know how I was going to pay for my next bottle of insulin and I was rationing the insulin I had left which made my blood sugars start running very high. They sent me insulin which saved my life. I am grateful to them and will never forget this wonderful foundation for helping me when I didn't know where to turn next. Thank you, Jared, for your kind heart."
THE ANDERSON FAMILY - CHICAGO, IL
"The first of the year is tough on Type 1 Diabetes families. Deductibles must be met and insurance must be paid before benefits and supplies can be redeemed. Last year our family again was in that process. Diabetes supplies needed to be ordered and there was no way to fund the thousands of dollars it would take to get what my Type1D daughter needed daily. In order to place my order, I needed to reach out to the Jared Kuper Diabetes Foundation. Without their help, my daughter would not have been able to continue with the prescribed medical therapies that care for her best. Jared and Tess have been on this journey together for years. Jared is an amazing young man who will do whatever he can to help where he can. Our family can’t say enough how grateful we are for all this Foundation is doing. Thank you, Jared."

"Jared Kuper was kind enough to actually give me insulin when I could not afford it on my own. Prices have skyrocketed and insurance doesn't cover my supplies until after a specific amount is met. It's insane how much it costs to stay alive! I don't know what I would've done without his help!"
