Buy the ‘Give a child a Rufus’ gift for a friend or loved one and help send our friendly Rufus - the bear with type 1 - to a newly diagnosed child
Being diagnosed with type 1 is a challenging time. It can leave young children feeling isolated. Rufus is a great friend to newly diagnosed children. He has special patches that help children learn where to test and inject - offering comfort and, most of all, showing them that they are not alone.
How does it work?
Select and order your gift. We will send you a ‘Give a child a Rufus’ pack containing a card with a brief description of the gift and an envelope. You can then personalise and send your gift to your friend or loved one.
