Who Are We?

We are Infants & Insulin, a family operated business in pursuit of a cure for our son, Carter, and his rare disease of Neonatal Monogenic Diabetes Mellitus. We make strong, eye-catching Paracord bracelets and donate a large portion of each sale to the Kovler Foundation at the University of Chicago, where Monogenic research takes place every day. We also do frequent fundraisers for JDRF, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
