German high school student with T1D


(Claudia) #1

I’m looking for a host family for Michael, a T1D 17 year old boy from Germany (of Chinese descent) applying to come to America as an exchange student. Our search has been hard mostly because most families are not familiar with T1D, so I wonder if someone here might be interested or might help me spread the word.
He can be placed in any city in the country where a high school would allow his placement and he needs to be within 30 mins of a medical emergency center.
We ask families to volunteer to host, provide a bed, meals, transportation and most important, a caring family environment.
We have been searching for months, and for him in order to come to America next month, we need a family ASAP.
Please, contact me if you are interested or have questions. Thank you very much,
