Where the Money Goes
All donations are for patient alternative medical health care.
Diabetes is a chronic condition affecting millions of Americans. Conventional medical treatments are available to control diabetes and its complications. However, some people also try complementary health approaches, including dietary supplements.
*Tell all your health care providers about any complementary or integrative health approaches you use. Give them a full picture of what you do to manage your health. This will help ensure coordinated and safe care.
1. Between 12 and 14 percent of U.S. adults have diabetes, but more than 25 percent of people with it are undiagnosed.
2. Taking insulin or other diabetes medicine is often key to treating diabetes, along with making healthy food choices and being physically active. CAM treatments include Nutritionist and Dietitians that can help you control your eating habits.
3. The average per user out-of-pocket expenditure for complementary health approaches was $435 for people with family incomes of less than $25,000, and $590 for those with family incomes of $100,000 or more.

Frequently Asked Questions
eFundYourHealth differs from other crowdfunding sites in that we also have a parallel process which allows corporate and individual donors to contribute to a Global Healing Fund pool designed to assist individuals in meeting their financial needs for their treatment and care.
Unless specified, your donations go directly to eFundYourHealth's general fund which is available for any patient. If you would like to donate for patients with specific illnesses, click on the disease heading to donate here. Add link: https://efundyourhealth.org/campaigns/ As a Global Healing Donor you receive a tax deduction, but you will not be able to specify the patient that receives financial assistance. Donations made to a specific patient are considered a gift and are not tax-deductible, per IRS regulations. You are still free to donate directly to any patient campaign - this donation is not tax-deductible.
eFundYourhealth distributes Global Healing money by allocating the Global Healing raised to each person who starts a campaign at eFundYourhealth, according to availability. The grant amount can be viewed in a pop-up banner by the patient when they start a campaign. Patients start a crowdfunding campaign on eFundYourHealth, and at the end of the campaign, they receive a supplement to the money they raise in their campaign.
