We were recently on location for a photo shoot with a lovely young lady named Alison. The setting was perfect – her family’s farm in Ohio. And she did a great job showcasing BANDI in action!
Alison is 13 years old and very busy with school activities and a variety of sports including volleyball, running, and horseback riding.
What you’d never know, unless she told you, is that Alison’s BANDI belt is not just an active lifestyle accessory for her. Instead, the pockets of her BANDI belt carry essential medical supplies that help her manage Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells.
While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D, and—at present—nothing you can do to get rid of it. Source: JDRF.org
BANDI pocketed belts can function as a stylish and discreet medical fanny pack, nurse fanny pack, epipen carrier, diabetes belt, epipen belt, insulin carrier, inhaler carrier.

Hi, my name is Sydney Barnett. I’ve know Alison since kindergarten. During that period of time she didn’t have diabetes. I remember it was the night of Thankgiving. I was about to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family when I got a phone call. It was Alison. I thought that it was just a normal phone call, but it wasn’t at all. She told me that she was in the hospital because she was diagnosed with diabetes. I began to cry at the thought of my best friend being diagnosed with diabetes. I worried about her and how she was taking it, but I didn’t need to worry because she is a fighter and doesn’t let her diabetes get in her way. Alison has taught me not to let anything stand in my way. She has become a stronger person and has made me become a stronger person. God has big plans for you Alison. Thank you for being my best friend.
