Firefighter Providing Free PPE to the Most Vulnerable Healthcare Workers
Spokane, WA – Kris Maynard, a firefighter and EMT at Spokane’s Fairchild Air Force Base Fire Department and president of Glucose Revival is providing free specialized PPE to one of the most vulnerable, high risk groups of healthcare workers, those with diabetes. People with diabetes are 7 times more susceptible and prone to more severe symptoms, complications and death from Coronavirus than those without it. Diabetes is the third leading cause of death in the U.S according to the Center For Disease Control and Prevention.
Maynard through his small Spokane, Washington business, Glucose Revival is providing the neglected, overworked and stressed diabetic first responders and healthcare workers their personal protective equipment (PPE) aid during the most critical time of need in America. Maynard and his company has given away over $50,000 of free Thrive glucose aids to healthcare workers from April 6 to May 1, 2020. Maynard said, “my passion to help the brave diabetic American health care workers and first responders aiding in the fight against Covid-19 led me to providing my emergency glucose medical aids, to these unrecognized heroes across America at no charge, I am also paying the shipping.”
The Thrive Glucose Necklace can immediately administer glucose in emergency and life-threatening hypoglycemia also known as low blood sugar situations. It is the only wearable glucose aid in the world enabling people to have easy access to emergency glucose in just seconds, 24 hours a day.
According to the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation one out of ten people, 34.2 million people, or 10.5% of the U.S. population, have diabetes in the USA. This equates to 1.8 million healthcare workers having diabetes and is one of the top seven medical conditions that increases the risks of dying from Covid-19.
People with Diabetes (PWD) without warning, at any time can face emergency low blood sugar problems. Low blood sugar is the most common emergency for diabetics. This can cause people with diabetes to become faint or pass out. Moreover, delaying treatment can cause depreciating cognitive thinking, which can lead to seizures, or even death. “There is extreme and extraordinary pressure on our healthcare professionals due to Covid-19 which compounds the need for an immediate glucose aid available to them 24 hours a day”, said Maynard.
The Thrive glucose aid is a necklace that contains the same substance used by EMT’s for low blood sugars and contains the same amount of glucose the American Diabetes Association recommends every diabetic to carry. The glucose necklace attaches with a magnetic clasp so the necklace can be easily pulled off and the glucose can be immediately consumed.
Maynard said, “because of the devastation within the Covid-19 pandemic my team and I made a decision to provide our Thrive Emergency Glucose Necklaces to diabetic healthcare workers across America completely free of any cost.” He further emphasized, “these health care workers are working hard, putting their lives on the line and making substantial sacrifices while aiding Americans who are sick, suffering and dying from Covid-19.” Maynard’s motto is “American healthcare workers are true heroes”.
Glucose Revival has attempted to contact every governor, representative and senator to help get the word out to facilities such as hospitals, clinics, police departments, fire departments and others such entitles so that diabetic first responders and healthcare workers can get their own free Thrive glucose necklace aid while helping others stricken with Covid19.

Maynard said his primary focus is getting his Glucose necklace aid out to as many first responders and healthcare workers as possible.
