“Mr. Ray,  I just wanted to say thank you again for your assistance with the insulin pump. As you know, it was a nerve-racking experience for me to deal with a pump that slowly degenerated and eventually quit working altogether. With your help, I was able to get back on track and enjoy a wonderful holiday season. Your graciousness throughout the process was immeasurable, and I wish only the best for you and your family this coming year.”  – Warmly, Margie Jones

Rachel Brown, Panacea, FL : Medtronic 508 Insulin Pump

“Dear Chuck – I can not say thank you enough! The pump has made such a difference in my life. When I was diagnosed and had to begin shots I really thought that I was not going to make it having to do 6 – 8 shots a day. After receiving the pump from the Charles Ray Diabetes Assoc. it turned everything around! I began to feel much better, had more energy because my glucose levels were being much better controlled. Again, thank you so much, I could not have been able to receive a pump without the Charles Ray Assoc.” – Rachel Brown, Panacea, FL.


I have been a diabetic for over 30 years.  I am currently employed at a job that does not have insurance coverage.  As you know, with diabetes I need to see a Dr. very oftern so they monitor my kidney function, blood pressure and other complications that may stem from diabetes.  At my previous job, I was able to get an insulin pump and supplies because I had insurance coverage.  Now that I no longer have coverage the prices of reservoirs and infusion sites were so high, that sometimes I would just have to give myself insulin shots. When I found out about The Charles Ray III Diabetes Association and that I could get supplies from them, I was so blessed. The products you are able to provide for me are like a “gift sent from heaven”.  I love the fact that each time I place an order you are always so helpful and prompt in processing my request.  Thank you so much for the assistance you offer and products that you make available to me.  This enables me to take better care of myself so I can be here for my family.  – Thank you again! Lynn Webb

Barb Fontaine of LindsAy, Ontario, Canada : Medtronic Paradigm Insulin Pump

“I will never be able to thank the Charles Ray III Diabetes Association, Inc. for their kindness and generosity in donating my insulin pump. My life has changed so much in the last three months with my pump. From six needles a day to one every three days is quite an adjustment. My A1C count has gone from 14.8 to 7.3 and I feel incredible. With this organizations remarkable help and support I have achieved something I didn’t think was possible. My family and I will be forever grateful.

Barb Fontaine, Lindsay, Ontario, Canada ”
